Club 500

For just £12, Club 500 gives you three chances of winning a major prize, including one of up to £1,000.

Support the Waterways and win a prize.

Club 500 helps raise valuable additional income to support our work to improve the waterways.  50% of all entry subscriptions are given out in prizes; the other 50% goes towards IWA’s campaigns.  Welches Dam lock, pictured here, has been closed for 12 years due to underfunding across Anglian Waterways, a situation we are campaigning to change.  Your support helps us bring derelict waterways back to life and protect our navigable waterways on behalf of all waterway users.

Waterways Heritage at Risk

Britain’s canals and rivers are a unique, living heritage. But that heritage is at risk – from urban development, lack of protection, loss of skills and knowledge and climate change.

You can help Save Waterways Heritage.

Sustainable Boating

We want boating on canals and rivers to be more sustainable and – even though the current overall contribution to UK carbon emissions is very small – we want to help reduce emissions on the waterways.

Aston Nature Reserve, Montgomery Canal

Work to bring the Montgomery Canal back into use as a navigation must also protect habitats.
