Double your Donation to West Cumbria Rivers Trust

20th April 2022 - General Catchment

What is it? 

From the 22nd April to the 29th April any donation made to West Cumbria Rivers Trust through The Big Give up to £5,000 will be matched by The Green Match Fund. For every donation received double the impact will be felt.

Why should you donate?

West Cumbria Rivers face serious problems - populations of the iconic Atlantic salmon and other species are declining year on year Invasive species are also a serious threat which combined with climate change is reducing the resilience of our rivers to flood and drought. West Cumbria Rivers Trust are working to improve the water quality and biodiversity in the rivers through habitat improvements, natural flood management techniques, controlling invasive species, removing physical river modifications and monitoring salmon numbers.

Jodie Mills, Director of West Cumbria Rivers Trust says: “Donating this week will help us to work closely with local communities and volunteers. Please donate to help us to improve our rivers and continue to monitor the fish populations which provides us with a picture of the overall health of our rivers, allowing us to understand the long term trends and which areas need targeting for river improvement. We’re grateful for any donations we receive as every donation will be doubled by The Green Match Fund.”

How does it work?

Donations must be made through The Big Give website using a credit or debit card. All donations made on The Big Give platform will be doubled by Champion Funds until either the target had been met or the campaign ends. 

Please head to The Big Give website between midday on 22nd April and midday on the 29th April to donate.
