More than ever, all of us need open and accessible spaces where we can recharge from the stresses and strains of daily life. Our canals and rivers provide these spaces.
However, caring for our canals has never been so challenging. And new risks linked to climate change are putting more strain than ever on our ageing infrastructure. Can you help us keep local canals and rivers open and accessible when we need them the most?
Each year, over £150 million of our charitable income and over 540,000 volunteering hours are spent keeping our canals and rivers open and accessible for us all to enjoy. Will you help us?
