WELCOME TO THE NGO EDUCATIONAL TRUST

For centuries, gamekeepers, stalkers and river keepers have been the unsung guardians of the British countryside. Nine times as much of the British countryside is looked after by gamekeepers as is in nature reserves and National Parks...but do you know what they do to help sustain our countryside?

Use our new website to find out more about what we do at the NGO Educational Trust and the role of gamekeepers in sustaining the British Countryside. Whether you are a teacher, student, land manager or are simply interested in the countryside you will find a wealth of useful information

The NGO Educational Trust is an independant registered charity established under the parentage of the National Gamekeepers' Organisation, whose primary aim is to educate children and older people into the ways of the countryside and the important part it plays in our lives.

Two Middle-aged Yorkshiremen Pedal After The Tour de France

Inspired by the start of this year's Tour de France in the north of England, two middle-aged countrymen - one a gamekeeper - will be swapping their usual four-wheel-drive vehicles for the hard slog of pedal power when an epic long-distance 300 miles in three-days cycle ride to raise cash for two charities, the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the National Gamekeepers' Organisation Educational Trust, gets underway on 17 July 2014 in Barnard Castle, County Durham.

The saddle-sore cyclists, a gamekeeper and a 4x4 mechanic, hope to arrive, puffed out but triumphant, some 72 hours later at their destination, the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire - with every single penny raised by this gruelling cycling challenge going to the two charities.
