A Lasting Gift

A gift in your Will, however large or small, could make a real difference. After taking care of your loved ones, please consider remembering Warwickshire Wildlife Trust when writing or updating your Will.

Legacies provide a vital source of funding for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Over the past ten years, the Trust has received almost £500,000 from gifts in Wills.


In 2016, thanks to the staggering generosity of local people, £130,000 of legacy donations went towards the purchase of our newest Nature Reserve. Bubbenhall Wood and Meadow is a beautiful site, saved for future generations. 

In 1985 a significant legacy enabled the Trust to purchase Ryton Wood, the largest ancient woodland left in Warwickshire. As a remnant of the last ice age, Ryton Wood, now designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), is a precious stronghold of 200 and 300 year old oak trees as well as the rare small-leaved lime. The wood is also home to 33 of Warwickshire’s butterfly species, including the endangered wood white. Thanks to that one final act of generosity, the woodland and the countless species that rely on it have been saved.
