We’re passionate about the Wandle Valley and urgently need funding to ensure that our vision becomes a reality.
The Wandle was once a catalyst for industry and urban expansion. Today we must ensure it survives as a green lung for our communities. Keeping the Wandle healthy and protecting its flora and fauna requires constant hard work. The people who do this are mostly volunteers and need your help to keep going!
Your donation will be put where it is most needed, to improve the river Wandle, trail and parks, or to support other projects to enhance the Regional Park. Even a small sum can make a difference.
You can make a one-off donation or contribute to an ongoing appeal
Where your money goes
£10 Could provide travel costs for 3 volunteers for a day

Leave a lasting legacy to the Wandle Valley Regional Park in your will
Enhancing and caring for the Wandle Valley is a huge responsibility and we need help. By leaving a gift to Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust in your will you can help to enhance and protect the river, trail and parks for generations to come.
Many think that only the very rich leave money to charity when they die, or that they have to exclude loved ones from their will. This isn’t the case. The reality is however big or small your gift, you can make a lasting difference to the Wandle Valley and the people who visit every year.
Why is it important to make a will?
Making a will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes will be followed after you die. If you don’t make one, part or all of your estate may go to people who you never intended to benefit, or be tied up with solicitors until things get sorted. Also, if you don’t prepare properly, a substantial part of what you leave behind may go to the State, depriving your loved ones and favourite charities of the benefit of your assets.
How to go about making a will…
Writing a will is relatively easy and inexpensive, but should always be drafted by a properly qualified professional. If you do not have a solicitor you can find one through The Law Society.
There are three main types of legacy to consider
- Residuary legacy: Part, or all, of your estate (after debts, funeral costs and pecuniary gifts are paid)
- Pecuniary legacy: A specific sum, which can be index-linked to safeguard its future value
- Specific legacy: A particular item to be used or sold by the beneficiary
