£2,560raised of £12,000 target by 23 supporters

Weʼre raising £12,000 to maintain and support our 1,600 year old ancient yew tree in the churchyard at Wilmington in East Sussex.

Saint Mary and Saint Peter, Wilmington, East Sussex.

What is crowdfunding?

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.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Our Parochial Church Council has the responsibility to maintain this magnificent 1600 year old tree and now needs to replace the supporting props professionally so that the tree's structure and shape do not collapse.

We see this yew tree as an important living element to the whole village community and of great interest to arboriculturalists and visitors as well as our own people. We need to raise funding for this conservation work.

All donations will go towards the present needs for the tree and its future maintenance in a dedicated fund.

      We regularly stay at Jevington and love visiting the yew tree at Wilmington. We would therefore like to contribute to the appeal.
