We’re celebrating 70 years of the Peak District National Park.
In April 2021 it will be 70 years since the Peak District was designated as the UK’s first National Park after decades of campaigning.
That passion and enthusiasm continues to this day and with your help we’re well on the way to raising £70,000 to celebrate this milestone and fund a series of conservation and access projects.
The projects funded care for the National Park, ensure it is accessible to all, and aim to inspire a new generation of people to love this special place.
With your support we have funded:
- Peak District Junior Rangers
- Moors for the Future Partnership
- South West Peak Landscape Partnership
- Miles Without Stiles
- the Monsal, High Peak and Tissington Trails
- the Stanage North Lees Estate
- Peak District Mosaic
- Accessible Derbyshire
- Ranger led Health Walks
- Fit for Work
- Ride Sheffield and Peak District MTB volunteer Dig Days
- a series of Year of Green Action projects
Our operating costs are secured for three years, so every penny you give goes to delivering much-needed projects within the National Park
As of December 2020 we have raised £68,000 towards our £70,000 target. Unfortunately due to the global pandemic and social distancing measures we have had to cancel many of our fundraising activities planned for summer 2020.
So we need your help more than ever to get us over the line to reach our target and fund all the wonderful projects listed above.
You can help us by – following us on social media, signing up to our e-newsletter and donating to #70kfor70 now. Every penny you donate will be spent on conservation and access projects in the Peak District National Park. Thank you.
