Creekside and Tideway - a unique partnership
Creekside Discovery Centre in Deptford is recovering from a year of lockdown thanks to a major cash injection of £120k.
We are thrilled to be working with Tideway who have stepped in to support us with 2 donations. Tideway, the company expanding the city’s 150-year-old sewer, is breathing new life into our charity, and its commitment to helping really wild wildlife flourish in a unique urban environment and it's something we are really proud to be part of.
The company stepped in first with £15k to keep the centre afloat and now with £105k for a host of new activities for local residents and Londoners.
The donation is funding seven new programmes including, public training for mapping local wildlife; land and tide walks; family learning aimed at Londoners, children and students; specialised certificated courses in creek know-how; and knowledge-sharing events aimed at developers and regeneration professionals.

Kelly Bradley, Community Investment Manager at Tideway, said:
“We are making a huge investment in London’s sewerage system – but once the tunnel is complete, it won’t be visible.
“Tideway wants to make sure the legacy of this work is seen through the wildlife and people who benefit from it – and supporting Creekside is a way to continue to tell Londoners about the legacy of the tunnel beneath their feet. The partnership also supports our wider vision for the Tideway project to reconnect Londoners with their river.”
We can't say thank you enough to Tideway for this vital support
Together we'll create a wildlife legacy for generations to come.
