We’re a small charity that receives no direct government funding and rely principally on applying for grant funding to deliver improvement projects across the catchment. We have a supporters scheme for those who care about rivers as much as we do. Your support provides vital funding for the continuing work of the Trust. It also helps us to keep those supporting us informed of our current activities and opportunities, and goes a long way to ensuring our rivers are improved and protected for generations to come.

There are several categories of support and you can join online below or by downloading and posting the supporters form.  If you would prefer to make a simple donation, use the donation button on the right hand side.
