The River Stour Trust is a registered charity (No. 257806), led by volunteers dedicated to the restoration and conservation of the River Stour Navigation for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.

You can help whether you choose to join us as a member, make a donation, and/or support our activities and events. This river has a long history which we hope you will help us preserve. We could not exist without our members and supporters – find out more.

The completion of the Gift Aid Declaration allows the Trust to benefit because we can reclaim up to an extra 28p for every £1 that is paid in subscriptions or donations at no additional cost to you! You need to be a UK tax payer paying an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax equal to the tax which will be reclaimed on your behalf (up to 28p for every £1).
