Why do we need donations ?
Our workers’ time, experience, and commitment come free, as they rebuild the Wendover Canal, but the plant and materials they use have to be hired or bought. Since the work began, over £850,000 has been spent putting the canal back to a restored state and most of the money has been raised by Trust members, or donated by supportive partners (such as local Inland Waterway Association Branches).
We do not rely on Government Grants, not a single penny. Even the money we get back from HMRC under Gift Aid has been paid originally as tax by our donors. So you can rest assured that any money you donate will be used wisely and productively.
Where your donation helps
£5 helps us train our nominated volunteers in First Aid
£20 donated means we can buy and lay 10 concrete blocks
£150 donated pays for the hire of a digger for a day
£450 pays for a metre of canal to be restored
