Cleaning up the Quays

The "Irwell Pride" Litter Boat outside Salford Quays

We've loved supporting the Healthy Rivers Trust in their partnership with national construction company Morgan Sindall Infrastructure. During this time, the partners have used the Downstreams engagement platform to issue pre-paid charity donation tokens which Morgan Sindall have issued in newsletters to neighbours of their high profile construction site on Salford Quays. The tokens provide a guaranteed charity donation of £1 to the Healthy Rivers Trust "Irwell Pride" litter boat that cleans up the Quays for local residents.

During December, this helped raise an additional £1,220 from businesses for the project as well as gaining additional supporters, who can now keep in touch with the project through the platform's News & Chat features, thus becoming loyal superfans who may donate again or refer to friends.
