This project connects the foundations global impact with local roots by supporting nature recovery and economic regeneration. Initiatives to safeguard and improve the river will include helping to build the environmental skills required to deliver lasting improvements through mentoring and traineeships and engaging locals in habitat creation and conservation work.

In the spirit of this tradition, we are thrilled to have partnered with the Rivers Trust to safeguard and improve the Valley Brook River in Crewe, building the capacity, capability and environmental skills required to deliver long-term environmental improvements in our local area.”
