How You Can Support Our Work

Achieving our aims of protecting Hampshire's wonderful countryside requires the support of many individuals. There are several different ways in which you can support us as shown below.
December 2014 - we currently have several vacancies for volunteers. You can find out about them, together with role descriptions on our Volunteer page.

We have recently teamed up with Give as you LiveTM. If you shop online via their website or via a plug-in to your browser, a portion of the referral fees are given to CPRE Hampshire. It's easy to do and Costs you no more than usual. Find out more about it at our Give as you LiveTM page.
Become our Eyes and Ears
Is there some potential development in your area that you are concerned about? CPRE Hampshire has partnered with The Hampshire Gardens Trust and the the Hampshire Buildings Preservation Trust in a programme to respond to planned developments at an early stage.
Go to our eyes and ears page to read about this scheme or to report a concern.
Attend an event
Often overlooked, yet a relatively painless way of boosting CPRE Hampshire's funds, and enjoyable at the same time. We have an ongoing programme of 'Walks and Talks'.
See our events page for Walks and Talks programme and forthcoming events.
Volunteer your time and expertise
We are always on the look out for volunteers who share our passion about the Hampshire Countryside. Whether it's helping at an event, participating in one of our campaigns or supporting us in other ways, we have opportunities at local and county level. GIve as little or as much time as you want.
Read more about our volunteering opportunities.
Become a corporate partner
Partnering with like-minded organisations is becoming an increasingly important part of the way we work. We have partners who sponsor awards, work with us on joint campaigns and donate goods, time or expertise. Contact our Director Anthony McEwen if you are an organisation interested in supporting our work to mutual advantage.
Read more about current partners.
Support your local group
As well as campaigning on local issues, our local groups organise various social and fund-raising events, such as garden visits, autumn suppers and evening meetings.
Go to the local groups page to find which is your local group and what they do.
Buy CPRE merchandise
CPRE mugs, T-shirts and other gifts are often on sale at local CPRE events. We also sell CPRE Hampshire Christmas Cards on a seasonal basis.
Throughout the year CPRE also runs online shop in association with the Natural Collection, winners of The Observer's Ethical Retailer of the year award 2007. At least 10% of online net sales from your orders will be given directly to CPRE, raising much needed funds to help protect the countryside.
Give a Donation and/or a Legacy
Any contribution is gratefully received and can go further if you are a UK taxpayer and make a Gift Aid declaration. Specific donations have helped us campaign to protect the beauty of Hampshire's countryside.
