Friends of the Bees

Together, we can make Britain a better place for pollinators!

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

About Friends of the Bees

Friends of the Bees is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. All our income is used to fund projects designed to improve conditions for pollinators, with a special emphasis on bees - and not just honeybees, but all pollinator species indigenous to the British Isles.

Our low overheads mean that we can make best use of our income, which is currently entirely from donations.

How you can get involved

We no longer have a membership scheme as such, but you are welcome to become a supporter of our work by making a one-off or regular donation. You can use the button on the left to donate using PayPal or any credit or debit card. You can also subscribe to our free newsletter so we can keep you up to date with our projects.

As of October 24 2020, Friends of the Bees is no longer trading as a Limited Company (CIC) but will still exist as a "virtual association" funded by voluntary contributions and staffed by unpaid volunteers. We have taken this decision in order to reduce the administrative burden and it will not affect our activities. We appreciate your continued support.
