Donations come in all shapes and sizes – time, money, items. All support goes a long way to helping the Trust and its supporters keep Castle Loch up and running, ensuring it is a wonderful place for wildlife, people and the future.
Donations and Regular Giving:
We have just set up a means to financially donate to the work of the Trust and help with the ongoing protection of Castle Loch. Click here for a copy of the Regular Giving and Donation Form. All donations are very much appreciated and no amount is too small (or too much!).
You can nor donate online via Virgin Giving, click here to be taken to our online giving page.
Funding to date has helped purchase the loch, buy tools, plant hedging, build nest boxes, make a Forest Kindergarten area for nursery children, run woodland children’s activities, by paint to repair Lochfield Cottage.
However the ‘to do’ list is never ending and we still have so much to do – clear rhododendron from the native woodland, replace the burned down bird hide, repair fencing, maintain the paths, replace a stolen petrol strimmer, open up Lochfield Cottage as place people can visit to learn more about Castle Loch…
Lochfield Cottage is presently a blank canvas, it is used for our volunteer days and we need all sorts of furniture and equipment, which might be taking up valuable space in your garage or attic.
Some of the things we presently need include:
- Petrol mower
- Petrol strimmer
- Old garden tools
- Patio furniture
- Fold up tables
- Pin board
- Bookcases …
If you are a dab hand with a needle and thread, we could also do with some table coverings made from plain single sheets with our name/logo stitched along one edge. This, along with some bunting to hang around the gazebo, would help us make a stand out impression at events. Or if carpentry is your thing, we could do with some help with making wooden latch gates.
Perhaps you have a few spare hours to offer as a volunteer (see our Volunteering page).
The Trust would like to extend a big thank you to all its financial supports: Dumfries & Galloway Council, Scottish Land Fund, Leader, Magnox, Lochmaben Initiative, Annandale Sailing Club, Jaybees Nursery, CSV ActionEarth and all of those individuals across the area that have kindly supported the venture.
