Donations are key to maintaining the Trust, enabling a wide range of projects and activities to continue and ultimately enhance and protect the river habitats for both wildlife and people, now and into the future.
Whether as a one-off or through regular support, all donations go into improving our rivers and streams and their associated habitats. Every £10 could plant a tree in the ground, every £25 could pay for a suite of water quality testing and every £50 could create 5m of spawning grounds for gravel loving fish.
