WE'RE THE RIVER RODING TRUSTa charity preserving, protecting and restoring the River Roding
We’ve won awards and secured funding to make a start.
IN OUR DREAM
of a clean, healthy biodiverse river for all to enjoy.
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.
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.
Our Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of The River Roding Trust. We are a bunch of boaters, land-lubbers, environmentalists, lawyers, designers and key workers who meet regularly and bring a wealth of experience to support the general management of the charity.
