Dorset Wildlife Trust offers half price membership throughout January
Thursday 21st December 2017
In January 2018, Dorset’s biggest conservation charity, Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT), is offering half price membership* for supporters wanting to help wildlife in Dorset for the year ahead.
The wildlife charity needs to grow its 27,500 strong network of support even further in 2018 in order to continue carrying out the vital work needed to look after wildlife on its 44 nature reserves and wild places in Dorset.
Highlights for wildlife in Dorset in 2017 include dormice breeding for the first time on the Sutton Holmes nature reserve, 4 new species of bat recorded at Holway Woods (Natterers bat, Bechstein, common pipistrelle and soprano pipistrelle) and the first record of glow worms at Broad Oak Orchard. Higher Hyde Heath has also seen the recovery of pale dog violets.
What's included in the offer?
This offer is valid from 1st - 31st January 2018. A year’s membership will start from £18 for individual membership (was £36), £21 for joint membership (was £42) and family membership £24 (was £48). Exclusively for this offer, we are giving away a free Bees Wax Candle Card, which is handmade in Dorset and includes two sheets of beeswax with wick to make your own candles.
The Carter family have been members for 5 years: “We love our family membership, we can heartily say it is one of the very best charities to be a member of, the magazines are informative and interesting, but best of all, you know your membership is really doing such valuable, worth while things. So, it’s a big thumbs up from us!”
Dorset Wildlife Trust's Supporter Development Manager, James Haldane said, “January is the only time of year we are able to offer half price membership, and it’s ideal for those who care about wildlife but aren’t able to spare the time to support us in other ways, such as volunteering. Regular donations received through our members support are one of our only reliable sources of income which enables us to continue our conservation work in Dorset.”
What you receive as a member
Other benefits to becoming a member include receiving the Dorset Wildlife Magazine and events guide three times a year, a guide to all our nature reserves in Dorset, a car sticker, sign up to e-newsletters with wildlife news and information. If you purchase a family membership**, children will also become part of the Wildlife Watch community and receive a Wildlife Watch handbook, 4 issues of the Wildlife Watch magazine a year, stickers, a badge and an A2 poster.
