The Ribble catchment is a sizeable area of over 860 square miles supporting significant numbers of fish, mammals and invertebrates. In the past, industrial and agricultural pollution as well as water abstraction and inadequate sewage treatment have caused severe habitat damage to the Ribble and its tributaries, to such an extent that the wildlife supported by the river has been put under threat. The Trust was established in order to enhance the water environments of the catchment, by restoring and protecting the river to make certain that future generations can enjoy the beauty of its wildlife and fauna.

RIBBLE WAY CHALLENGE

On 1st August 2014, Ribble Trust Director Jack Spees and Environment Agency colleague Mark Rudd are taking on the challenge of walking the entire Ribble Way in 26hrs - that's 72 miles non-stop! Money raised will be split equally between Ribble Trust & WaterAid. Please sponsor them and help us smash the £4,000 target!!
