Support us by Fundraising
There are many different ways to help support Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust…
Fundraising for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is a great way of helping to protect your local environment and having fun! Every penny, however it is raised, really does make a difference to wildlife on your doorstep.
You could do something as simple as selling cakes or plants at work or organising a coffee morning. If you are up for a challenge how about a sponsored event?
Fundraising online can make your life easier too. Go to our Just Giving page and click on the ‘Fundraise for us’ button to set up your own personalised fundraising page.
If you would like to discuss your ideas, please contact the Fundraising Team who will be happy to help.
A great way to raise funds whilst having fun! Simple and easy to do, Welly Wanging is a competitive social event involving the throwing of a Wellington boot as far as the competitor possibly can!
All you need is a Welly, a largish open space, and some way of judging who’s the winner!

You can save on postage and paper with an innovative e-card through Charity Greetings, which allows you to create your own e-card to send anywhere in the world. Every card sent will raise at least £1 for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.
If you prefer to send ‘real’ posted cards, why not visit the Visit Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Card Shop? With lots of card designs to choose from, there is something for everyone. Each card can then be handwritten for that personal touch, and a donation will of course be made to help fund our vital work.
Do you have any unwanted items at home, like books, cds, clothes, which could help raise money for local wildlife?
If so, why not sell those items via eBay and donate a percentage of the profit to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust?
There are many benefits of using ‘eBay for Charity’ to sell your unwanted items.
For example it can help you to:
- Stand out from the crowd - add credibility and visibility to your listings. All eBay for Charity items receive the charity ribbon
- Gain a following - find new buyers, increase customer loyalty and watch your bids and sales grow
- Make your money go further - select Gift Aid and the taxman will add 25% to your donation
- Receive the eBay fee credit - eBay will credit back your basic insertion and final value fees (equal to the percentage you donate)
To get started all you need to do is:
1) Register with eBay (if you have not already done so)
2) Create your sales listing – look for ‘Donate percentage of sale’
3) Select Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust as your chosen charity

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are signed up to Giveacar, a not-for-profit organisation which collects and recycles old cars and donates the proceeds either entirely to the nominated charity, or offers the car owner the option of donating half of the cash to us and keeping half for themselves!
Depending on the car’s age and condition, Giveacar will either recycle it at a green facility or send it to a salvage auction.

Giveacar is also able to accept donations of mobility scooters, ride on lawnmowers and farm machinery.
Would you like to raise money for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust whilst enjoying the spring flowers of Cyprus or Crete; birdwatching from your houseboat in the Romanian Danube Delta or enjoying a ‘trip of a lifetime’ in the Galapagos Islands? Wildlife Travel was set up in 1988, with the aim of supporting nature conservation by organising wildlife holidays in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
Their profits are donated to The Wildlife Trusts and they also work with local conservation organisations in the countries they visit.
Wildlife Travel will make a donation to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust if you mention us when making your booking with them. The amount of donation depends on the profits available but to give you an idea, if you have not travelled with them before, the donation would be at least £50 per person.
Their small group holidays are suitable for individuals, couples or friends. All trips cover general wildlife and local culture and some have a particular focus. Destinations range from Norfolk, Mull, Spain and Italy to Costa Rica, Chile and Australia. Flight-free holidays include the pre-Alpine valleys of the Vercors in France and the limestone of the Burren in Ireland, or you could enjoy the wildlife of Yorkshire, guided by staff and volunteers from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
Enjoy your holiday!
