Educational Visits for Schools

We have now decided to extend our fund raising activities to include grants to local schools in West Berkshire and North Hampshire to pay for the coach travel cost to National Trust properties.

We hope that these visits will help children appreciate that, apart from maintaining historic buildings, the National Trust owns and cares for estates, including farms, forests, wetlands, nature reserves, and stretches of coastline. Supported by talks and guides these provide considerable educational and recreational resources for visitors.

Can you help to support this new venture? We have allocated £2000 from our own reserves but, with coach costs of about £500 for a days hire we are seeking additional funds or grants for these days trips as we expect demand to be high.

If you think your school might be eligible for a grant or know of another school that might be eligible then telephone Keith Spires on 01635 30457

Should you like to make a donation, please make your cheque payable to National Trust Newbury and send to :-
