Love the broads is the Visitor Giving Scheme for the Broads National Park. It aims to inspire people to care for the environment through making a small donation at key tourism sites, through their accommodation provider, or by giving money directly.  If every visitor to the Broads National Park gave just £1 we could raise £7 million each year for projects to protect the Broads in the future.

 

How it works

Money is collected by the Broads Trust in a variety of ways and given to projects that will look after the beautiful landscapes and environment of the Broads. With your help, we work alongside local businesses and community groups to improve sustainable practices, and to make sure that the money raised goes to the places that need it most – so that the Broads National Park remains amazing and beautiful to visit.

Love the Broads is administered by the Broads Trust, an independent charity with Trustees from local businesses, the Broads Society and the Broads Authority.

What a fabulous new business supporter we have recruited – Cannells by the River at Reedham – deli, shop and patisserie.   Cannells is the perfect place to pop in to for delicious food and drink all sourced locally, where possible.    They also offer an excellent range of local produce to purchase – and great for gifts.

We are grateful to Chris, Emma and Elliot for their support in displaying our merchandise including the Broads by Bike books and wildlife badges.

The iconic Wherry Maud has received £1,000 towards the purchase of a new tender with an inboard engine which was more powerful than their previous support vessel and will significantly help them to offer more sailings for visitors to enjoy.   We are pleased, once again, to have been able to support this historic and loved wherry.
