Raise funds for rivers

It’s time to Put the Fun in Fundraising

Can you help raise funds for rivers? Ribble Rivers Trust are experts in all things water, and it’s our mission to improve rivers for wildlife and people. But we want more than that, we want to give everyone the chance to explore the wonderful world of rivers!

Our work ranges from education, community engagement, increasing river access, and farm advice to fish surveying, data collection, evidence analysis, and river monitoring to fish passage, river renaturalisation, habitat connectivity, wetland creation, and woodland creation (deep breath). Not forgetting the hundreds of people that take part in Ribble Rivers Trust’s volunteering and citizen science programme! When you join Team Ribble you can make all of these amazing things happen!

Our then chairman, Philip Lord, completed a walking challenge to raise funds for rivers.

Back in 2021 our Chairman, Philip Lord, raised over £5,000 for us by taking part in a walking challenge. What’s even more impressive is that Philip was 82 years old at the time.

Every day Philip walked a 4.7 mile route with his four legged friend Freddie. Philip originally hoped to reach 100 miles. However, once we saw how generous people were with their donations, Philip carried on.

In the end, Philip didn’t stop until he reached 500 miles!
