On the 27 November 2018, #GivingTuesday provides the ultimate feel-good antidote to the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  It’s the world’s biggest day of giving, with millions of people globally doing something good for a cause close to their heart.

For Norfolk Wildlife Trust, it’s an opportunity for us to celebrate our “Giving Heroes”: our many valued supporters from members and volunteers, to corporate sponsors and community fundraisers.  

Throughout #GivingTuesday we will be also promoting the power of giving and the impact it can have on our work.

Autumn and winter, particularly, are some of the busiest periods for practical conservation.  It’s when the bulk of our habitat restoration and maintenance work happens on our 50+ nature reserves, and in the wider countryside. At this time of year we also invest a lot in preparing special habitats for rare or declining species – often by hand.  This work is labour intensive, but essential for providing food, shelter, and optimum breeding and rearing conditions to help wildlife recover and thrive year on year.

So as the days continue to grow shorter and temperatures drop further, now is the perfect time to get involved and give nature a little boost.  With your support this #GivingTuesday, we can spend more where the need is greatest, to improve the outlook for wildlife here in Norfolk.

To find our more, call our Community Fundraising Officer, Ginny Seppings on 01603 625540 or email her at ginnys@norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk.

How to be a Giving Hero


Give funds

Why not fundraise for local wildlife by taking on a challenge, organising an event or street collection, or simply making a donation towards our work?

Our current appeal is to get a copy of The Lost Words into every primary school in Norfolk - we need £1,000 more to achieve it. Please read more and consider supporting this crucial campaign.

Give time

Join a NWT local group, complete a 2 minute beach clean on one of our coastal reserves, or volunteer in one of a variety of NWT roles available right now.

Do you know someone who loves nature and the outdoors? NWT Gift Membership could make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, or thank-you present – and helps Norfolk's wildlife too.
