Let's Fish! funding support

As a charity we do more than just care for 2,000 miles of waterways, we help local people and communities take advantage of the wellbeing benefits of being by water. We couldn't provide our fantastic Let's Fish! events without funding. It's supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, Environment Agency, Angling Trust and other local groups such as Nenescape.

You can donate too. Your little bit of help can make a big difference to local communities, families and young people.

Let's Fish! makes life better by water

We've heard some incredible stories from the families that have already visited a Let's Fish! event on their local canal. From helping people connect with others in the community to individual children and parents discovering the personal wellbeing benefits of just sitting quietly outside by the rippling water.
