Have you noticed the difference the Trust has made?

We can tell this story over and over again with images.  The Community Trust has raised millions of pounds to improve Warley Woods and completed a whole stream of projects. It does not need to raise millions anymore, but it does need regular income to help maintain and sustain what it does.  No one wants things to go back to this.

or this

New visitors may think that Warley Woods has always looked as good as it does today.  Even long term residents may have started to forget.   Please play your part in helping things continue to look as good as they do today (or even better).  The Community Trust's survival is not guaranteed.  It can only continue with your help.

How lucky are we to have Warley Woods?

People say they are lucky to have Warley Woods, but it isn't kept so lovely by luck. It can’t be sustained just by tombolas, plant sales and individuals picking up litter - while they play an important part. The Trust has to raise £800 a day, every single day, to pay for the management and maintenance of Warley Woods.

Could you help us met that target today with a donation, preferably a regular one if you can?  For Warley Woods to survive and thrive and to be maintained for you and future generations, it really does need your help right now.  £5 a month is just 17p day and together the lovely community around Warley Woods will make it a space they can continue to be proud of. Thank you for reading and thank you in anticipation of your support.
