Become a Friend

Red squirrels need YOU !  Our Friends form the core of our charity and we want you to be amongst them. By joining, you will become part of a team that ensures we can make long term plans – protecting reds throughout the UK for future generations to enjoy.

Already a Friend? then this is the ideal solution to those birthday and Christmas gift buying worries. It will not fail to please.

So – what do our Friends receive from us? When you sign up as a Friend of RSST you will receive a Welcome Pack. This pack varies according to the type of friendship you select. All Friends receive a quarterly newsletter (sent by email) and in your pack you will find a squirrel poster, postcards, pen, badge, squirrel facts and a car sticker.

Lifetime Friends will receive a special gift in addition to the regular Welcome Pack.

Corporate Friends receive 10 RSST pin badges, 10 pens, 10 car stickers, squirrel information and the opportunity to have our emailed newsletter sent to 10 different email addresses. You will also receive a supply of RSST leaflets for your premises as well as recognition for your company or organisation on the Corporate Friends page of our website (including a link to your own website)
