 We participated in the UK’s biggest match-funding challenge in December 2020, The Big Give Christmas Challenge and successfully raised £14,000 for the campaign. 
Thank-you to everyone who donated during The Big Give week in December. A special thanks to The Cedar Manor Hotel, The Wild Hart, Restore Our Planet, Mesuri Trust, Lake District Estates, Victrix and the Hedge and Woodland Conservationists who pledged their support to help kick start the campaign. 
The funds raised will enable 560 metres of native hedgerows to be planted across the Lake District. Thank-you.

We're celebrating after the recent opening of the much-loved Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Trail, which as expected has proven a hit. 
The trail reopened due to a successful six-month (K2T) community fundraising campaign in 2018 to help reinstate the path. 

The 10km return route from Keswick to Threlkeld has been well used since the opening on Saturday 5th December 2020 (it was on the 5th anniversary of Storm Desmond).
