Visitor giving scheme

Love the Broads is the Visitor Giving Scheme for the Broads National Park that 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. The scheme has provided £50,000 of grants to 29 projects over the past 6 years thanks to visitor donations!

Money donated goes to the Broads Trust, a registered charity established in 2008, which makes grants to projects in a range of areas including conservation, safety, education, accessibility, tourist information and many more.

Past projects

  • Introduction of the rare fen raft spider to the Broads
  • All terrain wheelchair at Hall Farm Cottages
  • Augmented reality sandbox
  • Planting of native plants at the Nicholas Everitt Park
  • Dyke dipping platforms
  • New visitor moorings
  • And loads more!
