Conservation organisation could lose £200 million

The National Trust could lose up to £200 million this year due to the coronavirus crisis.

The conservation organisation, which has a number of properties usually open to visitors in the county, including Westbury Court Garden in Westbury-on-Severn and Lodge Park in the Cotswolds, is appealing to the government for urgent support during the pandemic, as reported by the Swindon Advertiser.

The charity estimates it lost around 50 per cent of its income when it shut its properties this year, threatening the future of nature sites and staff across the country.

The National Trust urged ministers to step in to support nature, wildlife and environmental organisations and to be environmentally-minded in its economic recovery plan.
