Raising money for
Wendover Arm Trust
Hi, my name is Ray Orth and I have been a volunteer with the Wendover Arm Trust since 1993. The aim of the Trust is to restore the 6¾ miles of the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal which runs from Wendover in Buckinghamshire to Bulbourne (near Tring) in Hertfordshre. All the work is carried out by unpaid volunteers so there are no labour costs however, the current cost of restoration is £500 per metre of canal which includes cost of equipment hire and materials etc.
We have already been successful in restoring a 1/4 mile section which is in use and bringing pleasure to a great many people.
The canal will also provide a unique educational and leasure facility for local schools and youth groups of all ages.
Please help us to continue our work in restoring this beautiful and historic waterway which meanders through the lovely Chiltern countryside.
Wendover Arm Restoration
The current aim of our team is to bring back into water a further 500M which we plan to complete in 2019.
To give some idea of the effort required by our volunteers, to achieve this target it will require in the region of 5000 volunteer hours over the next 12 months.
Please help us by sending a donation in order that we may continue with our work to restore this beautiful and historic waterway which meanders through the lovely Chiltern countryside.
Please be assured that the full amount of any donation goes towards the cost of restoration, the volunteers receive nothing whatsoever by way of payment or expenses.
