Appeals

Make good things happen

With your support we’re enabling projects that make the National Park feel open and welcoming to all. And we’re supporting conservation work to make sure the Peak District landscape not only survives, but thrives.

If you love the Peak District and want to give something back, why not donate to one of our appeals?

Whether a regular donation, or a one-off gift, your support goes a long way.

Whilst all donations are welcome, having regular monthly supporters means we can support long term conservation and engagement programmes.

Nature recovery won’t happen overnight but with your commitment we can plan for a National Park that is enjoyed and conserved by everyone.

Fire Fund

Donate to our Fire Fund today to help us prevent devastation moorland fires in the Peak District National Park, and to fund vital moorland restorations after fires take place.

Here in the Peak District if the conditions are right, it doesn’t take long for fires to quickly get out of control. A smouldering disposable barbeque, ashes blown from a camp fire, a dropped cigarette butt and even a broken glass can lead to catastrophic damage to our precious and protected landscapes.

The damage to the environment, wildlife, habitats and vegetation takes years to recover and hundreds of thousands of pounds to repair.
