Ways you can help raise funds for SNCT

Take part in the local lottery

Telford and Wrekin Community Lottery


Telford and Wrekin Community Lottery has been launched to raise money for local good causes. You DON'T have to live in Telford to play – anyone can! Players have a 56 to one chance of winning one of the prizes which range from the £25,000 jackpot to three extra tickets. 60% of the money raised will go to local good causes and charities.

Join other supporters in raising funds to help return our canals to their former glory.

To find out how to support the SNCT and buy tickets in the lottery, please go to the Twincl website. You can sign up online or by calling 01952 327788.



helps charities and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online.  It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a direct donation for your cause instead.  So far we have raised over £700 in this way so it is well worth doing!

You can shop with over 2,000 well known brands and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!

It doesn't cost you a penny more.  Once you've registered, when you shop with a participating retailer, easyfundraising notes your purchase, collects the donation from the retailer and passes it to the Trust. 

To start supporting the Trust in this way, go to and:

  1. click on 'Support a cause' and select the Trust as the cause you wish to support – you may have to type in Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust
  2. fill out the quick form to register your details
  3. find the retailer you want to shop with
  4. click to visit the retailer, then shop as you normally would.
  5. Your donation will be shown in your account within 30 days.

From this site you can also download a Search and Remind toolbar which lets you know when you visit a site where you can raise money for the Trust although not all browsers are supported.

Save postage stamps

Please save all your used postage stamps, especially at Christmas, and pass them on to us.  Bring them along to one of our meetings, work parties or events, or pass them to a Trustee.  If you post them to us, please ensure you have attached the correct amount on your envelope. All stamps, including foreign ones, can be sold to raise funds for our cause.
