BET Membership and Donations

BET is a local charity and we are dependent upon the support of our members and friends for our income.  

At the moment we have around 230 members, many of whom have become regular, enthusiastic volunteers.   Their annual membership fees and generous donations enable us to cover our costs.  We keep these to a minimum but need to pay for such items as insurance, tools, construction materials and occasionally outside contractors. We have needed to apply for one-off grants for special projects but our regular income comes from memberships and donations.

If you have enjoyed checking out our website, visited the woodland reserves, and are interested in our future projects, please consider becoming a BET member and supporting our work.  As a member, you will receive two printed bulletins a year - Spring and Autumn - keeping you informed of all the various BET activities.

To apply for, or renew, membership or just to make a donation, please download and complete the form, following the instructions therein.
