Friends of the Bees

a community interest company

Together, we can make the world a better place for pollinators!

- by creating more pollinator-friendly habitat
- by discouraging the use of 'pesticides'
- by planting and encouraging native, flowering plants
- by encouraging beekeepers to adopt more 'nature-friendly' methods
- by promoting the use of native, or near-native bees and discouraging imports

Help us support essential pollinators

We have recently changed our legal status to Community Interest Company. We have no paid staff and low overheads, and we will continue to do a lot with a little. Even a small amount every month from the many who support our aims will make a big difference.

Please help support our work with a regular donation, however small.

Please use this button to make a regular or one-off donation using PayPal or any major credit card.
