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.

    Dear All, Another "big thank you" for your continuing support and interest. At long last, we have received all the required permissions and expect the work of propping and managing our ancient yew tree to start in early February. We will keep you posted on the work and its completion. Any photographs of the work in progress would be most welcome by .jpeg email attachment so that we can keep everyone informed please. With best wishes, John

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