Our collection tins, affectionately known as badger boxes, are great at helping to raise awareness and funds for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. If you run a pub, shop, café or bar and would like to have a badger box on your counter then please get in touch with

Organise an event

We are always over the moon when people get in touch saying that they would like to fundraise for us – we’ve had people holding dance events, loom band bracelet sales, cake sakes, burlesque shows, sponsored swims and even a ceildh! Those are just a few ideas, but really the possibilities are endless.

Take part in an event

Here are a couple that we can recommend:

  • Jane Tomlinson 'Run For All' events - there are numerous running events to choose from throughout Yorkshire from 10k up to the iconic Yorkshire marathon, simply register online and get in touch with us and we will send you a fundraising pack.

For any event you’ll most likely need a sponsorship form (download below) and a way to collect donations online. We recommend JustGiving, the world’s biggest online giving platform.

If you visit our JustGiving page you can easily create your own personal fundraising page. JustGiving has lots of information about how best to set up your page and how to share it.

Justgiving will claim Gift Aid on your behalf but if you are collecting offline donations please download the form below, which means we can claim Gift Aid on your donations, making your efforts go 25% further!

Fundraise – without even trying!

If the thought of running fills you with dread, then you might like to consider ways in which you can raise money at a more relaxed pace. There are plenty of schemes out there that exist to help worthwhile charities. If you’ve found a scheme and we’re not registered on there, then let us know! Here are some of our favourites:

Online shopping

Give as you live raises money for charity whenever you shop online - over 3600 retailers are signed up

 Internet browsing

When you use EveryClick as your online search engine, it generates a donation for the Trust

Scrapping old cars

If you have an old car that needs scrapping, Give a Car is the hassle free option that allows you to make a donation to the Trust

Recycle your mobile phone
