Remembering a Significant Event

The Lake District National Park maintain more than 3,100km of paths and bridleways. Millions of visitors, combined with our Cumbrian climate, means they are constantly carrying out improvements and maintenance. By making a donation today you can help us look after this spectacular place now and in the future.

You can choose to support the Lakes by sponsoring items, a ranger, an apprentice, or by making a one-off donation.

As far as sponsoring items goes then, for example, for a minimum donation of £600 you can currently sponsor Burns Gate, a wicket gate near Burns ease of Keswick with gorgeous views over Low Rigg and St John's in the Vale. Meanwhile down at Bowness-on-Windermere you can sponsor the Orrest Head Woodland Walk Fingerpost for £250.

If you are donating in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a special occasion, you can add a simple engraved plaque to a fingerpost, gate, stile or bridge and choose whether to add a message to the Lake District National Park memorial and celebration web page.

So there are lots of opportunities to remember an event, be it a birth, a death, a wedding, a birthday, or just a happy memory and also help the Lake District.
