Bird hide repairs

Raising money on behalf of the Cotswold Water Park Trust. 

Sadly we have recently (and not for the first time) fallen victim to vandals who thought it was a good idea to smash up the walls of one of our bird hides at our Shorncote Reedbeds Nature Reserve - home to some of the most amazing wetland wildlife.  A number of people asked if they could contribute to the repairs so I've created this page in order to facilitate that. We’re really grateful for all your support. 

Any donations are especially welcome at the moment as the Trust tries to find its way through the financial hardships created by Covid-19.  Any donations over and above what is necessary to fund these repairs will be used to support the rest of our charitable work around the Cotswold Water Park benefiting wildlife and people. They may even be used as ‘match funding’ or ‘third party contributions’ to lever in additional funds from other charitable sources therefore making your donation go even further!
