We're still collecting donations

On the 30th September 2020 we'd raised £694 with 14 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The Lake District is known for its stunning mountains, fresh air and clean Lakes but we need your help to keep it that way.

The Lake District has been welcoming visitors back after Covid-19 lockdown restrictions eased which is fantastic news for all those enjoying this spectacular place. However, the sheer volume of visitors is having a huge impact on the wildlife, landscapes and cultural heritage.

During these unprecedented times, a small donation can make a big difference!


  • £10 helps pay towards buying litter bags

  • £25 helps pay towards valuable training for our volunteers
 on the ground
  • £50 helps pay towards Lake Wardens to monitor algae in our Lakes

  • £100 pays towards a day for a ranger to patrol and keep the fells safe and clean

  • £200 could pay for a skilled contractor to carry out repair work

If you donate today, it'll make a huge difference for tomorrow.

We've got lots of rewards to say thank you for making a donation, so get involved and help us hit the magic £5,000 mark.


The great news is Crowdfunder is making it free for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis so 100% of all proceeds will go to our cause!

Thank you in advance for your support.
