Wild Trent Challenge - fundraising

Raise money for the wildlife you love

Wild Trent Challenge, Jack Roper 


Did you know that over 50% of UK wildlife is in decline? That includes hedgehogs, adders, lapwings and most of our butterflies. The good news is that together, we can bring it back.

We ask each Wild Trent Challenge participant to raise £100 to help us put nature into recovery; from otters to ospreys.

We love our fundraisers and we’re here to help you smash your £100 target, whether you’re a newbie to fundraising or not. Check out our top tips below and let's get started!

Sending in the money you raise

There’s a number of ways you can send in your sponsorship money for taking part in the Wild Trent Challenge. We'll tell you all about them...

Just Giving Page

JustGiving is a popular way to fundraise online by sharing your story with friends, family and colleagues.

Donations made through JustGiving come directly to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. Any cash donations you receive you can pay into your bank account and make a payment of that amount on your JustGiving page.

Set up your official Wild Trent Challenge JustGiving page here today.

If you would like to send a cheque, please make it out to 'Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’ and send it to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Sandy Hill, Main Street, Middleton, Derbyshire. DE4 4LW. Please include a note including your name and an indication that the donation relates to Wild Trent Challenge.

Card payment

Oh, and a little birdy told me…

If all of our Wild Trent Challenge 2019 participants raised £150, this could pay for the planting of nearly 4 miles of native hedgerow!

Where does the money I raise go?

Your money will make a real difference to Derbyshire. 

We're really grateful for your support and we know that you'd like to know where your money is going. 

Take a peek at our finances and rest assured, we'll spend the money wisely and with Derbyshire's wildlife at the heart of everything we do.
