Sponsorship

Every year we thank people for contributing vital funds to Gwent Wildlife Trust by taking part in the Race for Wildlife and always encourage participants to do a little bit extra by fundraising too.

The Race for Wildlife 2019 will be no different and we kindly ask that you consider raising sponsorship money to help us to do a little bit more for the wildlife you love.
This time your additional support is needed more than ever because Gwent Wildlife Trust want to safeguard a beautiful area of marshy grassland called Bridewell Common, adjacent to the Race for Wildlife route.
We want to protect and transform this important wildlife habitat, which has wildlife such as water voles, butterflies, dragonflies and birds like snipe and reed bunting, into a nature reserve as part of the Gwent Levels living landscape, for people and wildlife to enjoy now and in future generations.  

Please note:  This event is aimed at raising vital funds for Gwent Wildlife Trust.  As an extra incentive, if you raise more than £50 we will refund your entry fee.  Start fundraising by following the Virgin Money Giving link below.

Entry fees will contibute to GWT's core fundraising, sponsorhip money will contribute to the Bridewell Appeal.
