Wiltshire CPRE is a registered charity (211318). It is a campaigning group and a voice for everyone who wants to save our countryside. We believe that much of the destruction is unnecessary. We want a future in which our countryside is protected and enhanced while our towns and cities are made more attractive places to live. But to make this vision a reality we need your support. Almost all of our income comes from the public.

Making a donation
Your donations make the difference to our campaigns. In 2008 many of our members sent in donations to help fund the Branch during the Public Inquiry into the proposed Eastern Westbury by-pass (with a viable alternative proposed to the west); a campaign that raised over £9,000 in total.
