We hope you enjoyed The Real Halloween 23! The very best way to help us is to become a Supporter. Please use this form to join the Fairyland Trust.
Thank you so much.
[Please note that we are using a Charities Aid Foundation system which does not allow us to change all the web-forms as we’d like. It will ask if you want to be kept up to date by email (which we do) or phone or post (which we can’t do), so please ignore ‘phone’ and ‘post’].
Supporter queries or problems? Please contact us. You can also volunteer to help us with regular behind the scenes work or particular projects, and at our events.
You can also make one-off Donations to the Trust here.
The Fairyland Trust exists to enable young children to get to know nature: giving them the ability to identify plants and flowers around them, and see the difference between one bird or animal, and another. Research shows that when people really learn about nature when they are very young, they grow up better able and more motivated to protect it as adults. So this is our vital mission.
But we do this in a unique way. Rather than relying on classroom-style facts and figures, the Fairyland Trust teaches families and carers with young children about nature, through ‘arts and crafts’, folklore, storytelling and theatre. This makes us unique among nature conservation charities. We believe that using these techniques aids learning and helps memories stick.
A national survey found that more than 80% of adults agree that it “is vital to introduce young children to nature” but for one reason or another, few of them do so. The Fairyland Trust helps parents and carers to achieve this. As David Attenborough has said, “nobody is going protect the natural world unless they understand it”.
So by becoming a Supporter, you will be doing something very special for children, and essential for the future of nature, which benefits us all.
And without Supporters, the Trust would simply cease to exist. So please join today.
Elf Training shows children how to take a close look at nature and in so doing, how to identify native trees and learn wild animal calls and behaviours.
Above: in the Fairy Gardens Workshop, children make and take home a mini-wildflower garden to grow on at home. Many of these are now well-established and much loved wildflower plots in gardens around the country.
Without our Supporters there simply would be no Fairyland Trust. Children wouldn’t be enchanted by nature at our events, like the Fairy Fair and The Real Halloween. Parents wouldn’t be able to look forward to an ‘amazing’ day out, the ‘Organic Disney’ as one dad put it, where the magic, trees, plants and wildlife are real, with experiences you simply can’t get online. Grandparents wouldn’t see the new generation starting a lifelong journey of re-connection with nature. This is our cause and we’d love you to be part of it.
Supporters receive our Newsletter with exclusive how-to guides for nature craft-makes linked to the season, for you and your children to do at home. It also contains articles on What’s Out Now in nature and gardens, as well as Latest News about our activities.
