National Trust, Heelis, Kemble Drive, Swindon, SN2 2NA
The National Trust is a charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to protect them for everyone to enjoy. Our purpose is to look after special places, for ever, for everyone.
We look after coastlines, forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages, historic houses, gardens, mills and pubs.
Caring for all these places is a major responsibility. We do it because the alternative – losing the places that we love – is unthinkable. Membership and entrance fees plays a vital role in protecting these special places – but we rely on donations and gifts in Wills to cover the remaining amount.
Will you help protect the places that make life special for ever, for everyone?
