How your fundraising helps

Being part of Team Wild is so much more than running a marathon or hiking a mountain, it is your chance to save wildlife for the future, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. 

It costs us almost £2,000 a day to manage all of our reserves, so every penny you raise will really help our wonderful wildlife here in Somerset.

We'll support you!

A message from Kate, our Community and Events Fundraising Manager: “Somerset Wildlife Trust, like many other organisations is working within current Covid19 government guidelines. Many of our spring and summer events have been cancelled or postponed, so our apologies if you were looking forward to attending.   I will now be on furlough until such time I can continue the community fundraising programme at the level I would like and when we are all out the other side of the crisis.  But your sponsorship right now is more important than ever to help the Trust continue to protect our wildlife and wild places here in Somerset. If you have signed up to an event, please stay on board!  If you were thinking of taking on a Challenge, still enter and start training and fundraising.  Before too long we’ll be back and so will I to support you on the lead up to your challenge and after your big day, to help you reach your personal and fundraising goals."
