Why Donate?

We’re so grateful for your support in helping us to continue to protect and improve our river. Sewage overflows still discharge directly into freshwater, plastic  accumulates in our rivers, while sediments suffocate the flora and fauna which call them home. Only 14% of rivers and lakes in England are in good health by the Environment Agency. We want to change that. We can make our rivers a safer, cleaner place for people to swim, kayak, fish and play. With your donation, you can support us to organise vital conservation work. Here’s an idea of the amazing work your donations help to fund:

£5 a month

£5 a month could buy water quality test kits to identify and fix river pollution. Or buy a sapling to plant in our reforestation programme.

£8 a month

£8 a month could help us to work with schools, educating and inspiring a whole generation.

£10 a month

£10 a month could help us remove a fallen tree or large debris that prevents fish migration, allowing the river to move naturally again.

£40 adopt a wildlife home

As part of our wider nature conservation programme, volunteers have been working to construct wildlife refuges for some of the River’s iconic species. Your contribution goes towards materials needed to make owl, bat or bird of prey homes alongside mink tracking stations.

Other amount

Your monthly donation can help us achieve the big things; creating new standards for water quality and finding credible alternatives to traditional flood risk management.
