Make A Difference (MAD) in the Blackwater Valley

Our work is to conserve, protect and improve the Blackwater Valley to create a better environment for both the people and wildlife that live here. To achieve this, we need you!

There are many ways to help us by getting involved – even if you can only give an hour a month. Becoming a member of the Trust is one of the best ways to support our work protecting wildlife in our beautiful Valley. We have specific fund-raising appeals each year and are always in need of general donations to enable us to respond to urgent requests. There is also a variety of easy ways you can help us raise funds
