New Forest Hotels raises £4,800 towards local conservation

After launching the visitor gift scheme 6 months ago, New Forest Hotels have successfully raised £4,800 for the New Forest Trust. The funds will go towards the conservation, protection and improvement of the New Forest.



The Visitor Gift Scheme is supported by a number of local companies, with the money raised a vital income going towards local organisations as well as the forest. We have raised this impressive amount by asking our guests to donate a voluntary £1 on departure. Our sister pub, The Drift Inn, also donates a penny from every pint sold to the scheme.

Chairman of the New Forest Trust, Rick Manley, says “The Visitor Gift Scheme is now an integral part in helping the New Forest. It is great to see that New Forest Hotels have been so successful with collecting donations. Thank you to all the staff at the hotels, alongside the generous customers which have donated.”

Michaela Lisle, Managing Director of New Forest Hotels, says “It is great to help such a local charity, our customers visit the New Forest to enjoy its vast beauty so it is important that we help maintain this. Our guests have responded very well when being told about the donation. They enjoy the areas so are more than happy to help. We aim to continue to raise as much money as possible and look forward to hearing how the money is going to be used.”
