The Derby and Sandiacre Canal Trust have launched an “Adopt a Yard”scheme to seek pledges to assist with the funding of the restoration of approximately 1200 yards of canal between Derby Road and Hopwell Road Draycott.

The Trust needs to show strong support for the project before applying for grant funding as all the potential grant funders are looking for a commitment of approximately 20% of the cost of the project before we can submit an application.

As at mid June approximately £34,000 has been pledged (including gift aid) so we are a third of the way towards our target.
