Fundraise for Us

There are so many ways you can fundraise for us to help your river environments stay healthy, productive and beautiful.

Donations made through fundraising enable us to continue to protect and restore the Westcounty’s waterways. It bolsters our ability to tackle water-related issues, develop our work with local agencies, government, businesses, landowners and farmers, and create interactive and engaging educational sessions and public participation events.
All to benefit wildlife and people.

Why not don your waterproofs and Wade In For Water, for us and for the future of your rivers and their habitats.

Download a #WadeInForWater poster to encourage your friends, family and work mates to fundraise for us. You can download a Sponsorship Form too.

Remember – always follow the Water Safety Code.

Rivers Bring Water to Life

We might not realise it, but water is central to almost everything in our day-to-day lives.  Without it, no longer would there be lush green countryside, buzzing hedgerows, juicy strawberries or the gin in our G & T. There is no denying that Westcountry rivers are part of us as well as our landscape.

Here at the Westcountry Rivers Trust we are working tirelessly to protect and restore Westcountry rivers.  Rivers which supply us with drinking water, nourish our fields and gardens, as well as giving us places to walk, play and relax.
