Lantern Fund Appeal 2020

This year young people are facing many barriers in getting close to nature. You have been telling us we should be doing more to help young people experience the natural world – and we agree! It was also the view of past NHSN Members when they welcomed young members and delivered Lantern lectures by candlelight to hundreds of children in the early 1890s.

Our Lantern Fund Appeal for 2020 is raising £10,000 to help young people in North East England experience and learn about nature. We have already pledged £5,000 towards the target! 100% of your donation directly benefits young people and does not go to the staffing costs of NHSN or Children North East.

To help us continue this important work please donate to our 2020 appeal
