Help us buy a minibus to reconnect more people with nature

We urgently need your help to raise £30,000 to buy a minibus to reconnect children and young people with nature and inspire them to be custodians of our natural world.

In the age of the Internet, YouTube and smart TVs, do you ever feel that we are losing our connection with nature? That many people, especially children and young adults, simply aren't experiencing the great outdoors any more?

You're right. A recent survey showed that just one child in five is 'connected to nature'. Time spent playing outdoors has halved in a generation. Getting out into nature isn't just good for children's health and mental wellbeing, it's good for the future of the planet too, as they learn how to become custodians of the natural world. Yet sadly the outdoors is a closed book to so many children.

But there is something you can do. We are creatng a unique centre at Greystones Farm nature reserve, at Bourton-on-the-Water. The centre is designed to inspire children and young people who don't normally have the chance to experience nature. But there's just one piece of the jigsaw missing.

We urgently need your help to raise £30,000 to buy a minibus to bring visitors to Greystones. With a donation of £35 today, we could reach out to people young and old across the county, giving them an experience they will remember and treasure forever.

Your gift today could help us unlock so much for children who don't have regular access to the natural world including;

  • The chance to experience nature in a river rich in wildlife and a wildflower meadow
  • The chance to improve physical health and mental wellbeing
  • An opportunity to learn new skills and try new activities
  • Wild play and trail setting to build confidence and self-esteem
