Bank Holiday Weekend

Hello you amazing people you!

We thought we would send an update just before the Bank Holiday weekend as many of you might be out and about walking.... Well the weather doesn't look very good but tomorrow (Friday) is good so I think Alistair will be heading up to Nine Standards Rigg to chat to people up there and explain our ambitious project.

We have currently receievd £2,170 in only 3 days! This is unbelievable and better than we ever could of expected. We thank you all for your generous donations, you are all helping to make this project a success. We still have a long way to go so please keep sharing the project with friends, colleagues and neighbours who may be interested in donating too. Together we can make this route more sustainable so more and more people can enjoy it into the future.

Many thanks

Alistair, Sarah & Emma
