Joining and getting involved
Although CPRE has a core of excellent professional staff at national and regional level, the bulk of the organisation is made up of volunteers. Income is from membership fees, donations and legacies, with a small amount from trusts.
If you share our aims, we should be delighted if you would join us as a member or help us with some of our Branch or District activities. More information on volunteering and membership categories and rates can be found here, or see the National Office website.
If you can spare some time to help directly with our activities, that would make a huge difference to what we can achieve to keep Cheshire special. Help is much appreciated in a range of different areas, from active campaigning to fundraising or helping with branch or district activities. If you feel you have a contribution to make, do contact the Branch Chairman or your local District Chairman to discuss the variety of ways you can get involved.
Finally, you can support us by making a donation and/or by making a bequest which would benefit the branch or the wider organisation. Please contact the Branch Office if you would like further information on either option, or please send your donation (payable to the Treasurer). Alternatively, use our new online donation service powered by Charity Choice
