We can’t save Britain’s bumblebees without your help! The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a small, independent charity that relies on the generous support of the public. Please help us to continue to add much needed flowers to Britain’s landscape.
We work hard to create the habitats and to encourage the bee-friendly gardening that our wild pollinators need to survive. There are many ways that you can support our work:
Are you training for a charity event? Would you like to raise money for a great cause? The following platforms make creating sponsorship pages quick and easy; and make it so simple for your friends and family to support your cause.
In the past, we have had some amazing and intrepid members raise funds through dressing as bees, running marathons to undertaking gruelling bicycle rides. We are pleased to support these efforts through our mail and electronic newsletters when appropriate.
Other great individual fundraising ideas include:
• Hosting a book, cake or jam sale
• Garage/car boot/jumble sale
• Hosting an open garden
• Running a quiz night
• Hosting a non-uniform day at school or work.
