Weʼre raising £250 to fund the current bucks-swifts project in the village of Dinton.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

This web page here tells the story about swifts in the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. Oxford Diocese has promised to be sympathetic to swifts using their properties, be they existing colonies or potential new colonies. An Oxfordshire-based group of swift enthusiasts were the pioneers but now churches in other parts of the diocese are joining in. We already have a two Buckinghamshire churches with established or establishing swift colonies but a new project has emerged.
This is at St Peter and St Paul Parish Church at Dinton.
This project only requires a modest sum of money to cover the cost of materials required to construct boxes which will be installed in the bell tower. We invite all nature lovers to contribute whatever they can, whether they are residents of Dinton or live further afield.
Should we exceed our target, the excess funds will be used to start up any further swift projects in the county.

About the fundraiser
I am a keen natural history conservationist and birder. I have been interested in projects to "keep the skies alive" and halt (or even reverse) the decline in the numbers of swifts that visit us each summer. Dinton church deserves our help to help them help swifts.
