Living in this beautiful area I fully understand the impact of the tourist industry! It will always be a fine balance to keep its impact to a minimum! Ongoing repairs and maintenance will always be needed to keep the Lakes in tip top condition! Keep up the good work guys!

Sarah Burke 25th October 2018

This donation is in the name of Clive Burke a man who loved mountains & all they offer. We need to preserve what we have for those future mountaineers!! X

ERIC TURTON 23rd October 2018

Having done 71 of the 214 wainwright fells in the last year i think i need to give a little something back. Every time my wife and i walk up a path in the lakes, i often wonder who it was that laid the stone i was about to step on. Many thanks for making it a wonderful experience.

Kenneth Leadbeater 22nd October 2018

I'm sure that all of us who visit the UK mountains regularly appreciate the work which has and is being done to improve footpaths and reverse the effects of erosion. This campaign deserves the support of us all.

Robert Woods 22nd October 2018

Britain has some very beautiful countryside and the fact that we can go and enjoy it free is a wonderful luxury that needs to be protected

Glen Hamilton 22nd October 2018

I love walking in the UK. We should all try to help out. Every little helps; financially or through repair support groups or even picking up the odd bit of litter on the way...

Mike Haines 22nd October 2018

A really worthwhile cause. The mountains of Britain are fabulous places to visit and it's vital that we look after them. Keep up the good work. Mike

Lee Brown 19th October 2018

Having trekked up this lovely mountain I'm glad to be able to contribute towards repair of the path that I would have worn away!
