WAT BLOCKAID Appeal

Wendover Arm Trust BLOCKAID Appeal



Our volunteers have been busy! We are restoring the largely derelict Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal, from Bulbourne to Wendover. First we raised funds to completely rebuild Little Tring road Bridge, and then we restored the first 600 yds of the unnavigable Arm from Little Tring, including a winding hole (turning point) for boats.



Why blocks?


Our volunteers dig out the proper profile of the canal before lining it with a watertight clay material in sheet form. The sloping sides that will be under water have to be covered with concrete blocks to protect the clay lining.

Each block, on average, costs us £2 to buy and fix in place. Your generous sponsorship will help us continue with the work, all done by our volunteers to professional standards.

Sponsor as many blocks as you like; each sponsored block helps us go that little bit further.



Be part of BLOCKAID - sponsor a block!

If you are happy to be contacted by us (tick the box 'I am happy ...'), and if your donation is £10 or more we will send you a personalised donation certificate.

If you want someone else's name on the certificate, making it ideal as a gift for someone, then put their name in the 'message to fundraiser' box below.
