Make a Donation

This summer, we're asking you to help us say Thank You Bees!

Britain's bumblebees are a vital unpaid workforce. Thier industrious efforts pollinate many of our favourite fruits and vegetables like strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes and beans.

Help us say Thank You Bees by supporting our appeal. A £30 donation will buy enough seed to plant an area the size of a tennis court with wildflowers. Click here to visit our appeal website.

As a small, independent charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals to support our work for Britain’s bumblebees.

A gift to us helps achieve our vision of communities and countryside that are rich in bumblebees and colourful wildflowers, supporting a diversity of wildlife and habitats for everyone to enjoy.

Here are some examples of how we use your donations:

  • £10 pays for printing and posting two information packs for volunteers to display in their communities.
  • £15 buys 2kg of seed for wildflower habitat creation in arable margins.
  • £25 helps cover the costs of a site visit to advise on sympathetic land management for wildlife.

Gift Aid makes your donation go even further - and doesn't cost you a penny! If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an additional 25p for every pound you donate. Note: you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax in each year at least equal to the tax that the charity will claim from HM Revenue & Customs on your Gift Aid donation(s).

"We are facing a fundamental problem with the decline of bees and other pollinators. They have an absolutely crucial role in pollinating many of our important crops - without them we will face higher food costs and potential shortages."
