Legacy Giving

Pass on everything you love about Gloucestershire's wildlife and wild places with a gift in your Will.

The countryside holds a special place in our memories. For those of us who grew up splashing in sparkling streams or bounding across sunlit meadows, it’s where we were at our most carefree. Now, we remember the chirruping of darting birds, the heady scent of wildflowers, the timeless rural vistas, and trust that our children and grandchildren will always be able to enjoy such a glorious landscape.

Wildlife under threat

Sadly, however, we can no longer take that for granted. Gloucestershire’s wildlife is under increasing threat from the pressures of modern living, risking the loss of traditional woodlands, grasslands and orchards. In turn, that means we could lose the wildlife that depends on these delicate habitats, including bees, butterflies and birds such as woodpeckers and song thrushes.

How your gift could protect the wildlife you love

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust has been taking action for nature throughout Gloucestershire for more than 50 years. Our vision is a county with more wildlife, more wild spaces and more people coming into contact with nature. But we can only make that happen with the help of people like you. We especially rely on the gifts, both large and small, that kind supporters leave us in their Wills. Your gift, for example, could help us purchase and restore a new nature reserve, or even help save a threatened species such as the dormouse or nightjar.
