The Cotswolds Conservation Board is the team responsible for managing the protected area known as the Cotswolds National Landscape. They launched the Caring for the Cotswolds visitor giving scheme back in 2015.
With every purchase you make on the Go Cotswolds website, you can add an optional donation to the Caring for the Cotswolds visitor giving scheme. £1, £5 or £10 – every penny you donate is used to fund projects that conserve and preserve the Cotswolds for future generations.
Moreover, we at Go Cotswolds will match-fund your donations pound for pound. So, for example, if you donate £1, so do we! We have been part of this visitor giving scheme since 2016. So, thanks to our very generous customers, we’ve contributed thousands of pounds to the scheme so far.
Tourism and tourists can have a negative impact on the environment. Therefore, as a small family business and locals to the area, we want to do whatever we can to minimise that impact. At Go Cotswolds, we firmly believe in responsible, sustainable tourism, and we think it’s important for businesses like us to contribute to this scheme.
For more information about the scheme, please head to the Caring for the Cotswolds page on the Cotswolds National Landscape website. Watch the video below to see Tom talking about signing up to the scheme back in 2015.
