Get ready for Grow Your Tenner

Set a reminder for 10am on Tuesday 11th December, the start of the Grow Your Tenner match-funding initiative.

The Wey & Arun Canal Trust is once again taking part in the scheme, which provides a fantastic way for supporters to make their donations work harder.

In this year’s Grow Your Tenner campaign supporters setting up an annual monthly direct debit of up to £10 will see donations matched by not-for-profit social enterprise Localgiving after the first six months. Direct debits can be matched up to £10, so even smaller amounts can make a big difference.

Grow Your Tenner will run until the match-funding pot of £100,000 runs out, or 12am on Thursday 10th January - whichever comes first - so you need to act fast.

The initiative has proved a hugely successful fundraiser for the Trust in previous years and has gone a long way to helping support recent restoration projects, such as the completion of Gennets Bridge Lock earlier this year.

To set up a direct debit and gain matchfunding for the Trust, please go to https://localgiving.com/charity/wact. Don’t forget to gift aid it, too, if eligible.

Trust Chairman Sally Schupke is encouraging supporters to get behind the initiative. “The Localgiving match-funding initiative proves a simple and effective way for the Trust to boost its funds and ensure the current restoration projects move forward. I urge you to spread the work among family and friends and go to https://localgiving.com/charity/wact and click on the donate monthly tab.”
