Founded in 2009, Friends of the Bees has a mission to “make Britain a better place for pollinators”. To this end, we design and support projects that benefit bees, butterflies, birds and bats - and thereby, biodiversity (and possibly other things beginning with 'b').

We have recently changed our legal status to a non-profit 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. Membership is not required.

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

If you can't (or prefer not to) do PayPal, the easiest way to make a donation is by direct bank transfer. If you wish to make a regular donation, we recommend that you set up a Standing Order from your bank, as that keeps it under your control.
