New Forest and Hampshire County Show | Charity of the Year

The New Forest Trust

The New Forest Trust, whose charitable aims and objectives are the conservation, protection and understanding of the New Forest, is honoured to be chosen as the New Forest Show’s Charity of the year for 2018.

Our primary way of achieving our aims is to financially support organisations and groups of people in and around the New Forest who are directly working to protect and conserve its unique habitat and cultural history from the many issues threatening it.

Over the last few years we have supported many important projects ranging from start-up funding for the Pondhead Conservation Trust, to paying for transponders to track the movements of the rare bats that live in the Forest, the education work of the New Forest Centre, the work of the New Forest Land Advice Service, supporting the campaign to reduce animal accidents on the Forest’s roads and many more.

We are also trying to building up a stock of land and housing to be rented at affordable rates to young commoners without whom the New Forest has no future; as it is the commoners’ stock that make the open forest what it is.

Our work depends totally on the generosity of those who value the uniqueness of the New Forest so please visit our website – for more information about us, what we do and how you can make a donation.

We need your support!
