Help Fund Our Work

Donate, and help us to help Sherwood Forest.  A one-off donation (or even better, a regular monthly donation) supports both people and nature.

Business? From tree planting to getting local kids ‘hands- on’ with conservation, we have projects to fit your company aims and aspirations. Get in touch!

Why Support The Sherwood Forest Trust?

We’re a small Nottinghamshire charity, independent of any political or commercial links. We’re not part of any larger national charity.

We are the only charity 100% focussed on Sherwood Forest – not just the present day Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve, but the wider landscape that once formed the Royal hunting forest of Sherwood.
We help conserve and improve neglected fragments of heathland and woodland scattered throughout this area.

We promote and celebrate the heritage and legend that connects and inspires its modern communities.

We rely entirely on donations, grants, sponsorship and earned income. Give today and help Sherwood Forest survive for tomorrow.
