About The Wye and Usk Foundation
The Wye & Usk Foundation is a registered charity (no. 1080319) concerned with ecology and more specifically, restoring the habitat, water quality and fisheries of the rivers Wye and Usk.
We are the largest rivers' trust in England and Wales in terms of output and a leader in our field, developing new techniques and delivering improvements for the aquatic environment.
About Our Auction
Our 2018 auction includes over 50 fantastic lots from a wide range of generous donors. There is exclusive fishing, high quality shooting, books and stays in wonderful holiday cottages. Most of them would make great Christmas presents!
Please take a moment to browse the list of lots. You can use the "View All Items" link on the left or, if you would prefer to narrow it down, use the up/down arrows in the top bar to select a category.
The proceeds from the auction will go into the Foundation's Endowment Fund. Set up by our trustees, the income from this professionally managed fund will guarantee a reliable level of core finance for our charity.
It will give us a degree of certainty in our planning that enables us to concentrate on "the day job" - restoring and protecting the two rivers - rather than spending time fundraising and filling in time consuming funding forms.
For more information on the Endowment Fund, please see: https://www.wyeuskfoundation.org/appeal/the-endowment-fund
Please note that we reserve the right to withdraw or amend any lot at any time without prior notice, even if bids have been received.
