Wild Lives at Rutland Water Appeal

We need your help to raise £170,000 for a new Volunteer Training Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve.

Generous grants have been secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Anglian Water, but we urgently need to find the final funds to complete the build.

The new Volunteer Training Centre will provide much-needed facilities, including training and learning areas, bunk rooms for residential courses, meeting spaces, a kitchen and a mess room, workshop with storage for tools and equipment, wash-rooms and drying facilities.

The Training Centre will allow us to:

  • provide essential natural heritage training and countryside skills in fit-for-purpose facilities
  • engage with new volunteers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities
  • deliver comprehensive and inclusive programmes of volunteer support, development and training
  • enable more people to connect with and enjoy our wonderful natural heritage
