Please Donate Now

If you live, work and play in the Alde and Ore Estuary, please donate today for vital flood defences to protect our shared economy, homes and landscapes. Local businesses in tourism, leisure and the arts generate over £100 million per year in this area and they are at risk if we do not upgrade our river walls.

£12m is needed over the next 5-7 years to carry out the detailed Estuary Plan which provides a co-ordinated approach to upgrading and maintaining the flood defences in the Alde and Ore Estuary. Local businesses, landowners and residents are all pulling together to do their bit to make the SOS Estuary campaign a success: please make a contribution today.
