I have lived and worked in Cumbria all my life. I love The Lake District however, on a recent visit to Grasmere I parked up on the A595 and happened to look over the wall and was shocked at what I saw. Litter and piles of it, I then drove around and realised the place I love was a mess. Litter is everywhere in The Lake District.
Cuts in our country are hitting local communities hard and the litter is a prime example of where the cuts are impacting. Tourists are key to The Lake District but with people comes litter and our depleted services cannot cope. So what can I do I thought, I could turn a blind eye and bury my head in the sand or I could devote my time to tidying this beautiful place.
So why come to crowdfunder? Its simple, I want to volunteer all my time to cleaning up the Lake District however; I have four children to support and in order for me to fund this clean up I need your help. Please help me make a difference to our beautiful haven.
