Wildlife Friendly Otley are proud to be an active partner in the Friends of Weston Woods, working together with our partners including Menston Area Nature Trust, Otley 2030, Climate Action Ilkley, Addingham Environmental Group, Yorkshire Rewilding Network Wharfedale Naturalists, Woodland Savers and Protect Earth (the Friends of Otley East Wood) have been successful in our bid to secure the East Wood, for nature, for community, forever.

We also have to thank the wonderful philanthropist Julia Davies of We Have The Power, who has lent MANT a significant loan which enabled us to put in a competitive bid in a very short time.


So THANK YOU for all your support so far but the hard work continues – we need to pay back the loan as soon as possible, so Julia Davies can lend it to other projects like ours, and we also have to pay 20% VAT and lawyers fees for starters, so please keep donating and spreading the word! 


Please note we will get more of your donation if you use the Bank Transfer button below, than through the Crowdfunder site, it will direct you to our partner's  site (Menston Area Nature Trust).
