Ways to raise money

Open your garden

Many of you nurture wonderful wildlife-friendly gardens. Can you open your garden to raise some extra money for Cheshire Wildlife Trust?

You could join up with one or two others in your town, village or area. If you don’t fancy opening for the public, why not invite friends and family to your own private garden party or a simple afternoon tea in your garden or backyard. We can help with invitations, publicity and tips for organising the day.

Here are just some of the gardens that open for us each year.

Do you fancy a leisurely six-mile stroll through woods and riverside meadows to raise money for local wildlife? Join Cheshire Wildlife Trust at Chester Business Club’s annual charity walk this September.

Starting and finishing at the Riverside Innovation Centre, around 200 people enjoy this event each year. With free chocolate, tea, bacon butties and a gin and tonic to celebrate the end of the walk, it’s a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning.
