How you can help

If you'd like to make a contribution to a specific project, please take a look at the information below on what we're asking for support for at this time.
More projects will be added to this list in the future as they develop.

Ash Dieback – responding to a national crisis

Ash Dieback disease is here and devastating our ash trees. We need your support to deal with the significant impacts of Ash Dieback disease across the Malvern Hills and Commons.  The disease is expected to result in the loss of 60 – 80% of all ash in the UK and badly infected trees near to roads and highways around the Trust’s estate will need to be removed for public safety.  The stark effects on this landscape, its ecology and character will be considerable and the financial impact to the Trust will be huge – this  is why we need your help - Read more about our ash dieback response and please donate.

Providing information for visitors

Support our work to help visitors orientate themselves, plan walks and find out more what makes the Hills and Commons so special.

Memorial benches

We're sorry to say that all the benches in this year's memorial bench scheme have been reserved.  Due to limited opportunities becoming available and a large number of enquiries, we are sorry that we sadly cannot fulfil all requests for memorial benches on the Hills and Commons.

It is expected that another round of benches will be released in the spring of 2024.  If you are interested in other ways to support our work in celebration or memory of someone, please get in touch

Remembering loved ones

The Hills are an important place for many to remember their loved ones.  If you choose to scatter the ashes of a loved one on the Hills, we ask that you avoid the most popular areas and the tops of the Hills.  Please scatter the ashes over a wide area to leave no trace.

Please do not leave any flowers, trinkets, photographs or any other objects on the Hills to mark the site.
