Lantern Fund Appeal 2019
We are very excited to share with you our new Lantern Fund Appeal for 2019 raising £4,000 to help local young people experience and learn about the nature in north east England. We have already pledged £2,000 towards our target!
Young people are facing many barriers in getting close to nature. You have been telling us at recent NHSN events 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 1890’s.
To help us continue this important work you can help in one or more ways.
Donate to our 2018 appeal (cheque / online). For example
£5 £10 £25 £50
NHSN has already got the ball rolling by committing £2,000 and have a target of £4,000 to reach this year. With your help we should be able to reach the target. If you would like to donate, you can do so using the form at the base of this page, or by sending a cheque payable to “Natural History Society of Northumbria” to The Great North Museum: Hancock, Barras Bridge, Newcastle, NE2 4PT.
You can make a donation online via PayPal, using either your PayPal account or credit/debit card if you don’t have one.
