‘Golden Friend’

Quite a few of our members have expressed a desire to help the Trust financially because, for various reasons, they cannot do anything physically. This could be because of the distances involved in travelling, lack of their own spare time or a general inability to do the work required. These people have, quite independently, arrived at the same method for feeling that they are doing something and helping us with our work. They have approached us and asked if it would be possible to set up a Standing Order on a monthly basis, payable to the Trust. They feel that this will help them to feel part of the ‘team’ and they will be able to direct their efforts and funds to those areas of our work which they would particularly like to support. For example, one member wishes to support overseas projects, whilst another would like their contributions just to go into the ‘general’ pot and for WOT to use the funds when and where it feels necessary.

Of course, as a member or adopter you are already giving us wonderful support. However, we thought that this scheme should become open for all of you to take a part in, if you should so wish. With this in mind, this article is hoping to give you the chance to contribute to the areas where you wish to see an emphasis placed, or to split your contribution between two or more ‘pots’. Whatever you wish. The amount of the monthly contribution is irrelevant - you choose. If every member chose to donate £1 per month - well! We’d be in heaven.

The areas that are currently open for your selection are:
British Owls Nestbox schemes for Barn Owl, Tawny Owl, Little Owl
Overseas projects
WOT managed wildlife reserves
We would like to have our own nature reserve(s) for our members to visit
Scientific Research
A research centre, equipment or funding of research projects
Wildlife Hospital
Hospital equipment, contribution to veterinary bills
Materials, classroom equipment etc.
General WOT funds
Owl food, tools & equipment, aviary building & repair. More staff!

If you would like more information on any of the above please ring - we will be pleased to help.

Print off the Golden Friend Standing Order form. Write the amount you would like to contribute, monthly, into the appropriate box. Once the form has been completed, return it to us and we will do the rest.
