We don't measure our achievements in seasons, years, or even decades. Our investment in wildlife is for the years to come. Celebrate life by giving a gift that could truly last for generations.
When thinking about your Will, you’ll want to make sure your loved ones are looked after first. Once you have done this, please consider including a gift to the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire to ensure that generations to come can enjoy a wilder future in our special, local natural world.
Why give a gift in your Will to the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire?
The last century has seen huge changes to the countryside and the loss of many traditional habitats. Wildlife that depended on these habitats has suffered, with many species in decline. The Wildlife Trust was set up to create a balance between wildlife and people. We protect many of the last wild places in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire and strive to ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy nature.
We are determined to make a positive change. Gifts in Wills are helping us to make nature's special places even bigger and better and we are working to create landscapes where wildlife can once again flourish.
You can make a difference today. Giving a gift in your Will ensures that the wildlife you care so much about is protected well beyond your lifetime. Just a 1% gift in your Will to Wildlife Trust BCN will protect nature and the wild places you love for future generations to come.
"I'm sure that, like me, you're concerned about the future of our planet. You too share a belief that it is important that we leave a thriving natural world for future generations to know and enjoy. That is why making a Will is one of the most important jobs any of us has to do."
Sir David Attenborough, President Emeritus of the Wildlife Trusts

Gigi Crompton (1922-2020)
Gigi Crompton was one of our Trust’s founding members and an eminent Cambridgeshire botanist.
She developed a pioneering methodology for surveying rare plants and published numerous botanical papers on important habitats in East Anglia. Gigi’s research into historical plant records culminated in the publication of Cambridgeshire Flora Records since 1538, the definitive historic and geographical archive of our local wildflower species records, including many rarities and new county records.
