Since we became an independent charity in 2007, Wiston Lodge has made a number of very committed Friends. It is important to us to add to this group, especially now. In times of economic difficulty and cutbacks, there are more and more young people in need of the unique brand of personal, social and emotional development we offer.
When you become a Friend, we will keep in touch through our newsletters, our website and Facebook page. We will tell you about Open Days, our annual Burns Supper, and the many other events organised throughout the year. For Founding Friends back in 2007, we planted a number of orchard trees in our garden area. Perhaps you would like to have a tree planted in for you in one of the regenerated woodlands on the estate.
In turn, by becoming a Friend, you could help us in three ways:
- Financial support. Both regular or one-off donations will help us with the costs of maintaining and upgrading our old building and other parts of the estate.
- Become an ambassador for Wiston Lodge, passing on details of Wiston Lodge and our work to friends and colleagues looking for a venue for outdoor activities, nature connection, music and arts or for a retreat, family party, wedding or holiday.
- Supporting us in our work and mission. If you have some spare time or some special skills, why not get hands-on at Wiston Lodge, helping in our garden, the grounds and with maintenance tasks. Read more about volunteering here.
Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss becoming a Friend.
For donations you can donate through JustGiving.
