Will you donate to help our valiant volunteers?
Over 50% of the Canal has already been restored, including many sections by volunteers. This means we can greatly reduce costs. But we still need money for materials and equipment plant hire. Our next target is to raise the money – some £300k – to rebuild Schoolhouse Bridge, Crickheath. This was demolished in the 1950s/60s and is the last road bridge obstructing the route back to Llanymynech at the Welsh border. See The Plan page for more details.
Will you help us by making a donation? Regular monthly or annual sums are preferred as we then know what our future income will be and so we can plan ahead. £5 a month….maybe more?
- £5 will pay for four bricks in the new bridge
- £10 will pay for the cost of hiring a dumper truck for one hour
- £15 will pay for the cost of a digger for one hour
You can use the Appeal Leaflet or download a banker's order form. Alternatively, you can use the LocalGiving website
Please consider making use of Gift Aid. The Government encourages taxpayers to donate to charities by offering a 25% tax rebate which we can claim. So £20 cost to you is worth £25 to us.
A couple of recent donations came with messages:
"I enjoy walking the canal at Queens Head and Maesbury so am grateful to the volunteers and here's a small thank you."
"Alfie 10 and Freddie 8 held a 24 hour sponsored cake bake and then sold the 400 cakes they made although they may have eaten a few too" (The cakes were 50p each, so raised £200.)
How else you can help?
Maybe you can help us when we have a stand at an event? Or maybe organise a fund raising event. See the Get Involved page.
