Following a devastating fire on Wednesday 31 August 2022 that affected one quarter of the woods, a GoFundMe donation page has been set up by long term volunteer Kashmir Flint. The proceeds will go directly towards Project Phoenix, a recovery plan to help restore Dane Valley Woods. You can find the page here:





Why donate to Dane Valley Woods?

Thanet has 80% less tree coverage than the UK average.

In fact, we have the same tree coverage as the City of London! 

Help us with the upkeep of Dane Valley Woods by donating via PayPal below, and let us make Margate beautiful.


Donate via PayPal



Dane Valley Woods costs around £500 a year to run, so we’re grateful for any amount that you can spare us!


You can sponsor a tree for just £1 that will be planted at our next tree planting event.


If you enter a name and email address and to whom you would like it addressed to, you will receive a personalised certificate, which makes a great, unique gift!


Your generous contribution will go towards meeting the project running costs – for example buying and maintaining tools, providing new seats and wooden sculptures, or fuelling our mowers and strimmers.   

You can also visit us on a task day, which we hold on the last Sunday of every month from 10am until 1pm to drop off a cash donation

Or you can post us a cheque, for ‘Dane Valley Woods’ to our Treasurer at 165 Ramsgate Road, Margate, Kent. CT9 4EY.
