Hadrian’s Wall Trust has launched a new fundraising campaign to ensure the World Heritage Site survives for future generations.
People are invited to attach their names to a stone, not on Hadrian’s Wall itself but on a virtual realisation of it on the website adoptastone.co.uk.
Linda Tuttiett, Hadrian’s Wall Trust chief executive, explained: “The budget for the maintenance of the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail suffered a major reduction and now needs additional support. We are determined to maintain the trail in excellent condition.” The trust is aiming to raise £20m to secure the future of the wall over the next 10 years.
I have myself adopted a virtual stone near Housesteads, my favorite place along Hadrian’s Wall.
Adopt a stone at www.adoptastone.co.uk Your contribution will go towards conserving and preserving Britain’s greatest monument, now and in the future.
