OUR NEXT EVENTS: Eclectic London - Weekend trip Fri Sep 08, 2017 @08:20


The National Trust works with more than 270 voluntary supporter groups, which provide support to the Trust in a large number of ways – physical, financial and promotional. Our Belgian Group NTAB is one of those supporter groups, listed in the NT Annual Report as ‘Belgium Association’.

Each year we reserve a major part of our financial surplus for a donation to NT properties in Britain. Traditionally we donate to properties that we were or will be visiting during our annual UK trip. We select the most suitable beneficiaries bearing in mind that we aim to give substantial exposure to our association and to support projects, preferably with a Belgian connection, for which we can see a tangible result.

At the Annual general meeting of 21 May 2016, our members approved the donation of €7110, about £6150) for support of properties in the Lake District: €2,440 to Sizergh Castle, €2,000 to Clandon Park and €2,670 to Fell Foot boathouse, to restore the damage from the recent flood.

For the year 2015 we donated €6000 - the equivalent to around £4300 - for Kingston Lacey (repair of glasshouses), Ham House (new trees), Washington Old Hall (property's wishlist) and Seaton Delaval Hall (garden seating).
