Appeal Update

Appeal Ambassador, Matthew Rhys, at the launch two weeks ago

Its now nearly two weeks since we launched our appeal to raise £1m to save one of Snowdonia’s most unspoilt places – Llyndy Isaf.

Since then, not a day has gone by without me answering queries and writing letters of thanks to people who’ve sent in their contributions.  I’ve been struck by how much this place means to people and how they genuinely want to help us keep it as beautiful as it is now.

Early on Saturday morning, I talked about the appeal on the BBC Radio Cymru, Galwad Cynnar programme. I’m hoping that Gerallt Pennant and the team will be able to broadcast a whole programme from Llyndy later in the spring.  It would make a perfect location.  With so much wildlife and history, there’s just so much to talk about!

It’s too soon to report on how much has been received so far.   My letter has been sent out to thousands of NT members last week and we are beginning to receive donations large and small.  I do hope that you will be able to help us by making a donation – either by cheque or by clicking the link on the right.  Every bit helps us move closer to the target.

If you are planning a visit to Snowdonia over Easter, why not take a walk to see for yourself how beautiful Llyn Dinas and Llyndy Isaf are.  Click here for a downloadable walk that takes you through the farm.
