A group of people swimming

You can get active with a sponsored swim, do something delicious like a bake sale, or something more relaxed like a read-a-thon. No matter how you choose to fundraise, we’d love you to join our team!

Your support could help us to restore even more rivers, plant even more trees, and do even more to bring back nature and tackle climate change.

Fundraise for us

Your fundraising efforts will help to support wild, healthy, natural rivers. Visit our JustGiving page below to sign up.

Need some ideas?

Ride, run or row for rivers - taking part in a sponsored bike ride, run or kayak can be a great way to raise money. If you’re planning to get fit this year, consider raising some money in the process.

Hold a bake sale – hold a bake sale and donate the profits to our cause. Bonus points for river-themed cakes!

Sponsored swim – lots of our supporters have undertaken sponsored swims, taking on a specific river or distance to raise money for The Rivers Trust.

Read-a-thon – raise money from the comfort of your living room by taking part in a read-a-thon. Set yourself the challenge of reading a collection of books in a set time limit. We have lots of river-related recommendations if you need them.

Birthday fundraiser – struggling to think of what you want for your Birthday? Why not ask friends and family to donate to a fundraiser instead?
