About two-thirds of our income comes from grants but the other one-third is generated by smaller donations from supporters, friends and activities. By becoming a supporter of Bees Abroad for £15 per year, you would enable us to support another family. A regular newsletter will keep you up to date with news of all our projects and forthcoming events.
£15 will provide materials to make one Top Bar Hive. This will last for many years and provide a family with vital nutrition and the income from selling honey and beeswax.
£30 will enable a recognised village leader to attend a residential beekeeping course for one week at an Agricultural College. This person will be a valuable asset to their community and as a trainer is an intrinsic part of a Bees Abroad project.
Larger donations can be made to specific projects – you could sponsor a hive, or your group could be twinned with or sponsor a project. For those who are making tax planning arrangements, we are a registered charity, and therefore Bees Abroad could be named as a beneficiary, to take advantage of the 36% inheritance tax rate (in the United Kingdom). A short introductory guide can be found here – but is no substitute for professional financial planning advice.
If you would like to become a regular supporter, please download the standing-order-form and send it to Veronica Brown, Administrator, Bees Abroad, PO Box 2058, Thornbury, Bristol BS35 9AF. Cheques should be made payable to Bees Abroad.
