When you leave a gift in your Will to Canal & River Trust, you’ll do more than just 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 is important.
If canals, rivers and the wildlife surrounding them have played a special part in your life, then say ‘thank you’ with 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 journeying across England and Wales. You will help ensure that all you love about our waterways lives on for future generations to enjoy.
Your legacy will pass on 250 years of history and heritage
Dating back over two hundred years, our canals are a living museum of the nation’s engineering and history. Beautiful iconic bridges and an incredible infrastructure of networking canals that have stood the test of time.
From their beginnings as the beating heart of the nation’s industry, to facing abandonment after the introduction of the road system, our waterways have withstood neglect and now provide a place of escape, joy and wonder for everyone.
Will you give a gift in your Will to help keep alive the waterways you care about?
Your legacy will protect and pass on our waterways to the next generation
Your love of your waterways can live on, in the sunlight that dapples on 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.
