As a small charity we rely on the goodwill of others to continue our work in supporting gamekeepers, stalkers and ghillies and their dependents. We understand there are many worthy causes and are appreciative of every penny donated to the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust.
Donate – There are a number of ways to donate and it is easy to give online. Gift aid is an effective way of supporting our work. Just Giving is also a way of donating and if you wish to be sponsored for any activity we can help by setting up a page and promoting your event. Click here to go to our Just Giving page.
Fundraising -If you have an idea for a fund raising venture, do let us know. If you wish to organise an event yourself, whatever it is we will help you to organise and provide whatever help we can should you require assistance.
Sponsorship – We welcome support from companies connected to gamekeeping and recognise support like this via our website, newsletters and promotional stands where appropriate.
On-line shop – if you would like to purchase our latest calendar or any other merchandise do have a look on our shopping page.
Special event – Collections at birthdays or other celebrations are a great way of helping us. A collection in memory of a loved one can be a special way of remembering someone involved in gamekeeping or shooting by helping the charity dedicated to the profession.
Legacies – You may wish to consider a legacy and there is an opportunity through “In Memoriam” to leave a message for loved ones. Click here for more details.
Promotions – Consider purchasing from Kings Game Cover – in their promotion of £1.00 per bag to GWT for their wildlife game cover crops. Funds raised in this way have totalled over £3,000 to 2011.
Volunteering – We welcome support in terms of volunteers, for a specific fundraising event, help at Game Fairs, or specific skills or resources- please do contact us for further details.
Spread the word– Our most important messages is that we are “there for gamekeepers, stalkers and ghillies ”. This means as a friendly ear through a difficult time or tangible practical help in terms of financial grants, housing problems, seeking a job or sourcing the correct advice for a particular issue. Please tell everyone we exist to help anyone who may need assistance – whatever it is and for however long it might take – in complete confidence.
