Pay by Standing Order:

By paying your annual subscription through a Standing Order you will be helping BWT to collect your subscription in the cheapest and most efficient way which means less of your subscription will be spent on administration and more on conservation. It also offers you the convenience of knowing that your subscription will be paid on time.

You may cancel the order at any time by notifying your bank and advising BWT.

Download a Standing Order Form, complete it and return it to the BWT along with your completed membership application form.

Please note, we cannot accept Direct Debits.

Gift Aid:

Many people also make their contributions to the Trust even more valuable by agreeing that their payments should be topped up by Gift Aid.

If you pay income tax and complete a Gift Aid declaration, then we can claim back from the Inland Revenue an extra £0.25 on every £1 you give to us at no extra cost to you.

Thank you again for helping the Trust to make an environment rich in wildlife for everyone.
