How You Can Help
We depend on the support of our members to help us help our local wildlife. There are two ways to become a member of our ‘Friends of KCT’ scheme; by making a donation or by volunteering.
Become a member by making a donation

We value every donation, whatever the size, and as such we do not prescribe a minimum annual donation. If you would like to support our work through a donation, please download and print the membership form, complete it and return it to the address shown along with your donation. You can send us a cheque or, if you prefer, set up a regular payment by completing and returning the standing order form. If you are a UK income tax payer, completing a Gift Aid form will allow us to claim an extra 28 pence for every £1 you donate.

A donation will entitle you to an annual membership of ‘Friends of KCT’. With this you will gain access to our ‘Members-only’ paths at Kemerton Lake Nature Reserve and Kemerton Wood. You will also receive our bi-annual newsletter and invitations and free entry to our Member only events and our annual Open Day.

The income we receive from donations makes a crucial difference to our work. It helps us to pay our runnings costs, buy tools for our volunteers and purchase materials for our habitat management work.

Become a member by volunteering

If you enjoy the outdoors and nature and want to get stuck in helping local wildlife, you may wish to become a member through volunteering. There are lots of ways to help us in our work, such as surveying wildlife, building nest boxes, helping at events, working in our wildflower nursery, or taking part in our monthly work parties.

Outdoor work parties are help once every month (except December) on Saturday s between 10am and 1pm. They are suitable for anyone aged 14 or over, with a reasonable level of fitness, who is enthusiastic and willing to get stuck in. (Young volunteers aged 14 or 15 must be accompanied by a parent). No experience is necessary and we supply all the tools and safety equipment required. Volunteers are free to take part in as few or as many work parties as they like during the year. We carry out a wide range of tasks including hay raking, tree planting, scrub clearance and bat box building. The locations vary from month to month, but all volunteer work parties take place on the nature reserves or managed land overseen by the Trust on and around Bredon Hill. As a volunteer, you will get to visit some special paces that are not open to the public and to learn lots about our flora and fauna. Upcoming work party dates and locations can be found on News and Events.

All our volunteers receive a free annual membership to our ‘Friends of KCT’ scheme in return for their time and effort. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and would like to know more, please contact our Support Coordinator Kate Aubury by email kate@aubury.co.uk or by phone 07765 334776.

Volunteers are absolutely vital to the ongoing work of the Trust, carrying out much of our essential annual habitat management and wildlife monitoring.
