When you leave a gift in your Will to the Canal & River Trust, you’ll do more than protect our waterways. You’ll pass on a place where history lives on, where memories are made, where people have the chance to slow down and remember what's important.
If canals and rivers, and the wildlife surrounding them, have played a special part in your life, then say ‘thank you’ with a gift in your Will.
Now more than ever, we’re relying on gifts in Wills from supporters like you to help our work live on. Remember A Charity Week (7 - 13 September) is the perfect opportunity to consider passing on something wonderful by leaving a gift in your Will.
Your legacy will mean that, in years to come, waters can continue to flow through over 2,000 miles of canals and rivers in England and Wales. You will help ensure that all you love about our waterways lives on for future generations to enjoy.
Stretching back more than two centuries, our canals are a living museum of the nation’s engineering and history – beautiful bridges, iconic aqueducts and an incredible infrastructure of networked canals that have stood the test of time.
From their beginnings as the beating heart of the nation’s industry, through facing abandonment as inland cargo switched to road and rail, our waterways have withstood neglect and now provide a place of escape, joy and wonder for everyone.
Will you leave a gift in your Will to help keep alive the waterways you care about?
Your love of the waterways can live on, in the sunlight that dapples the water, in the beauty of a kingfisher’s plumage as it dives, and in the carpet of bluebells that signals the arrival of spring each year. By making a gift in your Will – and telling us about it now – you give us the security that comes from knowing we’ll have a guaranteed future income, when the time comes.
