“touching with bare feet on the ground, smelling the smoke from the fire, seeing all the colours on small animals, tasting blackberries, hearing nature all around… feeling excitement and being a part of it!”

Where the funding goes:

A large amount of the funding supports Trusts engaging with local children through Forest School and Nature Tots sessions, supporting our Every Child Wild beliefs, these sessions are set up in major cities across the UK often where children might not ordinarily get the opportunity to engage with nature. As well as this, the funding also supports our work to protect our Wild spaces, stand up for our seas and inspire people to take action for wildlife. Thanks to the players the community, wildlife and our wild landscapes have all benefited from the funding across England, Wales and Scotland.
