National Bee Centre Wales Adopt-a-Hive

Welcome to Hive Aid – from the National Beekeeping Centre for Wales

About the National Bee Centre Wales

Each year the National Beekeeping Centre Wales welcomes over 25,000 visitors, advises and informs the public about bees and beekeeping, educates school children about bees and other pollinators, trains and informs beekeepers, works with landowners and distributes thousands of bee friendly wildflower seeds. Our beekeeping centre sells artisan / raw honey & hive products and beekeeping equipment. We provide beekeeping courses and taster days at Bangor University’s Henfaes Research Centre at Abergwyngregyn.

By supporting our work you will be making a real contribution to the welfare of the Welsh honeybee population.

Thank you!

Hive Aid

Think bees are just about honey? Think again…

As our greatest pollinator, bees are responsible for a third of foodstuffs that make it to our plates from staples like apples and pears to exotics like avocados, mangos and coffee.

But our honeybees are under threat. Loss of habitats, pesticides, diseases, pathogens, pests and climate change are threatening their survival.

When you join Hive Aid you will be supporting Welsh bees and safeguarding them for future generations. You’ll learn all about these fascinating creatures and what the National Beekeeping Centre for Wales is doing to protect them.

Plus you will get a great welcome pack that also makes a wonderful gift.


At just £30 Adopt a Hive makes a great gift for any gardener, nature lover or foodie, plus it’s a wonderful educational experience for a child.
