Lancashire Woodland Connect

We have launched a decade-long campaign to double the area of woodland across Lancashire to fight climate change, improve air quality and reduce flooding. We will plant more than half a million trees to reduce flooding, improve air quality and remove 100,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere

Working with private and public sector supporters together with community-based groups and conservation charities, we are aiming to create 100 kilometres of new or restored woodland alongside the Rivers Ribble, Lune and Wyre and their whole catchments.

Our ambitious 10-year Lancashire Woodland Connect campaign will create an expanding network of connected woodlands for the benefit of communities across the entire county.

In order to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets over the next decade, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has worked out that we need to plant at least 50,000 trees throughout Lancashire EVERY YEAR.

But to pay for it all we need to raise £500,000 per year of funding from public and private sector partners, grants, and the general public in order to raise £5 million. Progress has already been made towards this year’s target and this exciting initiative will continue to engage thousands of sponsors, volunteers, schools and community groups.

Ribble Rivers Trust Director Jack Spees said:

“There is huge appetite from communities across the Ribble catchment to do their bit to tackle climate change, increase biodiversity and contribute to natural flood risk management.

“It’s clear that there are significant benefits to be achieved by expanding woodland cover and that this should be a priority for all, but the scale of this project is beyond the capacity of a single organization and a partnership is required to take this forward. By working together, we can achieve so much more than alone.”

So we really want YOU to get involved in the campaign – either by donating via the donation options below, or by participating in hundreds of grass roots tree planting and habitat creation projects across the county.

You can support this project by donating £15.00 to plant a tree and we will give you a report on your trees journey and growth, as well as sending you photo updates of the woodland your tree is part of.  Your donation will support and enable us to deliver our Lancashire Woodland Connect campaign to plant 500,000 trees across Lancashire.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Ribble Rivers Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Ribble Rivers Trust we can claim back 25p from HMRC, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Ribble Rivers Trust to reclaim the tax from HMRC on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Ribble Rivers Trust will reclaim 25p of tax from HMRC on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Ribble Rivers Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
