We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Who leaves legacies?

Anyone and everyone can leave a gift in their will. Kay Jay Hindes-Hardy is just one of the people who has chosen to support our work by leaving a gift in his will.

Kay Jay Hindes-HardyMy connection with the waterways started when I was tiny. My grandfather was a skipper on a four-mast ship beginning of the 20th century and from as far back as I can remember we had boats in the family, in fact I don’t know a time when we did not have one

The decision to include a legacy gift to the Canal & River Trust in my will is down to my love of boats, rivers, canals, fishing, the sea and everything in between.  The 2,000 miles that the Canal & River Trust looks after are just one part of the UK’s immense beauty – they help areas and communities so much.

It’s hard to choose, but one of my favourite stretches has to be the River Ouse from Kings Lynn to the Bedford Canal. Supporting the Canal & River Trust is important to me to ensure these beautiful places are looked after and protected well into the future.
