Vital site maintenance at the Maria Islands
We know what a difficult time everyone is having at the moment, but we are so grateful for your donation to the Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT). We were delighted to have raised $1,492.03 at the end of October, from 28 individuals, some of whom donated multiple times. Thank you so much.
As you know the impact of Covid-19 on our work has been wide-reaching. The SLNT had to close all its properties, reducing income to almost zero. We also had to stop routine maintenance during the months of island-wide lockdown. Since then, we have been able to resume some of our work managing Saint Lucia's rich heritage for the benefit of present and future generations. We could not have done it without your help.
Through this crisis, everyone has become more used to communicating digitally. The way our supporters have responded to SLNT social media posts, online activities and radio shows has been really heart-warming. It was wonderful to showcase our work during the Citizen Scientist Prizegiving, our Trust Pioneers Lecture on 26 September (the day we celebrated our 45th Anniversary!) and the Girls of A Feather Storytell(her) Bootcamp last month. All great opportunities to spread the word about the incredible conservation work of our SLNT.
Your gift has gone a long way in supporting our heritage conservation efforts during this pandemic. Yet we still face an uphill struggle to offset the financial losses of this year. Please consider sharing details of our campaign with your networks. Or even donating again, if you are able to, especially on Giving Tuesday. Each donation made on 1 December 2020 will increase the proportion of GlobalGiving’s incentive fund which SLNT would receive.
Thank you again for your continued support for the Saint Lucia National Trust. We will be back in touch soon with another update.
