Thank you to all our supporters who are helping us make our Three Sisters wildlife haven accessible for everyone to enjoy!
The Crowd funding managed to raise £1058 towards the £13000 we need. We have some pleas to local firms still in the pipe line which we hope will bring results. Asda has promised to put us in their next Green Token round which should give us some more money.
We will keep you informed about our progress.

Help Us to raise money to pay for work on the site
The work that the Friends do on the site is funded by donations from users of the site and money from the council that we have to bid for. Our councillors are very generous and give us funds from their Brighter Borough money for specific work. This year they have given money towards mending the edge of the lake and putting in drainage on the main drive.
One of our expenses is the food we put out for the birds. We have not found a grant that will pay for this and over the winter months we spend quite a large amount on this food.
One way you could help us,AT NO EXTRA EXPENSE TO YOURSELF, is to follow the link below and join easy fundraising.
When you shop on line you use the link and a small amount of money is given to The Friends. Some things like insurance and holidays give quite large amounts to the Friends but often the money arrives in small amounts BUT it all adds up.
Help raise money for Friends of Three Sisters whenever you shop online this Christmas. Use #easyfundraising to shop with over 3,500 big name retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and ASOS – when you shop, you’ll raise a FREE donation with every purchase you make.

I hope you will consider this easy way to donate to our work. Thank you.
If you would like to help us in the garden we would be pleased to have your help. Any amount of time would be appreciated. If you are not a gardener but would like to learn we can offer help and advice and practical experience. Please contact us to let us know.
