Sources of Money
Harnham Water Meadows Trust is a relatively small Registered Charity. Its affairs are managed by volunteers with a minimum of professional advice. The Trust is grateful to Natural England and DEFRA for the significant grant aid it receives through the Environmentally Sensitive Scheme (ESA) to help cover the day to day management of the meadows and some of the capital costs associated with management of the water meadows. These grants help us to maintain the historic landscape of the meadows, manage parts of the system and enhance the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with its protected species, for example the water voles.
The Trust has no endowment and like most charities has to raise further funds to carry fulfill its mission.
There are five ways in which individuals and organisations can help:
Support the Harnham Water Meadows Trust
For details of how to do this click here. Subscriptions and the money raised at events contribute several thousands of pounds
each year to the Trust.
A Donation to the Trust
Donations can be sent to the Trust and may be Gift Aided.
Sponsor a Restoration Project
Costs vary according to the size and condition of the structure to be restored to its proper working condition. Proposals may
be discussed by writing to the Trust. Sponsorship by an individual taxpayer can be Gift Aided.
This can be tailored to suit the sponsor. Proposals may be discussed by writing to the Trust.
A particular form of words is required and setting up a legacy should be done with the help of a solicitor. The most important
thing is to include the Trust’s Registered Charity Number (1001360).
Donations should be sent to Smith and Williamson, 21 Chipper Lane SALISBURY SP1 1BG
(it would be appreciated if taxpayers could certify that their donation can be Gift Aided)
