Leave a legacy to the BMC Access & Conservation Trust (ACT) to help ensure the walking and climbing conservation project become reality.

This will help protect cliffs and mountains for future generations. Legacy income is vital for the long tem future of ACT and will allow us to continue our important work.

Your gift will make a real difference. A gift in your will is an incredible way to help protect those aspects of our mountain and cliff environments that you have cherished over the years. The BMC Access & Conservation Trust has been running for over 15 years and has already made a real difference including:

  • work in 10 of our National Parks including the Yorkshire Dales and the Brecon Beacons to protect and repair footpaths in the National Parks;
  • research into carbon emissions of the mountaineering sector; and
  • access & conservation improvement projects at popular climbing venues such as Avon Gorge and the Pembrokeshire coast.

This type of work will help us to continue to make beautiful places accessible and protected for future climbers and walkers, as well as help to protect the landscapes you know and love for years to come.

"The BMC's Access & Conservation Trust does great work preseving our hills and mountains for future generations. I recommend that people support it." Doug Scott, CBE

All legacy income given to the BMC Access & Conservation Trust will be spent directly on projects to protect your cliffs and mountains accross the United Kingdom. Any charitable gift that you decide to leave in your will is exempt from inheritance tax.

If there is a location of particular importance to you then please let us know. We want your wishes to be reflected in our future work.
