The charity making life better by water

Congratulations to everyone who took part in Canalathon 2023.

A huge thank you

The funds you've raised through Canalathon will help us create more blue and green spaces in our towns and cities, and allow nature to flourish right on our doorstep. It will also help us protect the important heritage of our canals in the face of climate change.

We look forward to sharing the final total raised with you very soon!

How your fundraising makes a difference

Three volunteers planting trees by the canal

£100 helps nature flourish

Your fundraising could help plant 18 apple, pear or plum trees which blossom for insects in spring, and go on to produce fruit to feed birds, animals and people in autumn.

£200 protects our heritage

The money you raise could help protect and ensure the long-term survival of our 200-year-old heritage structures, which have become more vulnerable in the face of climate change.

Cycling along the Regent's Canal

£300 makes cities greener

Your donations could help upgrade urban towpaths for walkers, runners and cyclists, providing greener ways to commute and exercise.
