Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock help the BMC to Mend Our Mountains

Posted by Peter Burnside on 30/08/2017

Having become the BMC’s recommended retail partners in 2017, leading outdoor retailers Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock are now the headline partners of Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million.

The year long campaign aims to raise £1 million for the vital repair of paths across the hills, mountains and landscapes of Britain, with fundraising activities taking place to encourage outdoor enthusiasts to raise money.

This appeal is close to the heart of Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock, with part of their DNA as outdoor retailers being a passion for the outdoors and protecting Britain’s National Parks for generations to come.

BMC CEO Dave Turnbull says: “We are thrilled to be launching Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million. This is a flagship initiative for the BMC and the BMC Access and Conservation Trust, which shows our commitment to safeguard the outdoor and adventurous environment to the benefit of everyone.

“The campaign is a collaborative effort with a UK-wide coalition of organisations, businesses and campaigners, as well as the public. To reach our ambitious target we need everyone to do their bit. We all benefit from these wonderful places and we all have a role to play in looking after them.”

Greg Nieuwenhuys, CEO at Outdoor and Cycle Concepts, the parent company of both Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock said: “We are delighted to cement our partnership with the BMC through the headline sponsorship of their Mend our Mountains: Make One Million campaign.

“This enables us to further engage with the British climbing and hill walking community, as well as supporting the fantastic work the BMC undertake to ensure continued access to the landscapes so many of us hold so dear.”

Has the discount code been sent? I've checked my inbox and junk and there's no sign of it.
