How to Help
‘To save a breed is priceless’
To establish a new breeding group in the collection costs around £500
To maintain that group for a year [feed, labour, recording etc] costs £300
The Cobthorn Trust is currently seeking to raise the necessary funds to construct a purpose built new breeding unit at Cobthorn Farm to house the National Poultry Collection and to allow the establishment of further breeding groups in a number of critical rarities.
This project alone is likely to cost over £30,000 of capital expenditure plus the additional staff costs. The Cobthorn Trust is a non profitmaking conservation Trust which relies on the donations of interested supporters to supplement the Trust’s income from its consultancy work.
If you would like to help the work of The Cobthorn Trust, donations are always welcome and can be sent to the address here.
