Carbon Offset - Cheque handover to Worcestershire Wildlife

We aim to meet the challenges of Carbon Footprints with a Carbon Offsetting scheme in which guests are invited to offset their holiday carbon footprint by making a suggested £5 donation to The Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.

If you would like to opt in to this, there are 2 ways to do it:

  1. If you are booking online, just tick the appropiate box in Optional Extras

  2. If you are booking by phone, please tell us you would like to add an Offset donation

Either way, £5 will automatically be added to the amount you pay.

We undertake to add £5 to every £5 donated.
