Do you want to take on a challenge and raise money for Mend Our Mountains at the same time? Download our new fundraising pack to help you on your way.

Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million is a call to action to everyone who values the hills, mountains and landscapes of Britain. Through a year-long appeal we aim to raise £1 million in total for a range of vital projects within the UK’s entire family of 15 National Parks. 

The campaign is already well underway, and we’ve already made a good start towards raising the money we need. Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock have come onboard the appeal's Headline Sponsors, other businesses have lined up to donate cash and all sorts of other goodies, and we’re reaching out to other charities and individuals who can get us closer to that big target.

But we need your help too. 

MOM is about more than just big sums of cash – it’s about normal people who love the outdoors. The connection between the people using the landscapes and the desire to protect them is the most important thing of all. 

Do you have a brilliant idea you’re itching to put into practice? A challenge you want to complete? This summer is the perfect time to put it into practice. The Mend Our Mountains team have produced a pack specifically designed to get you started on your own fundraising mission, and they’re on hand to support you.

The pack contains loads of really useful info, including a step-by-step action plan of how to organise your own fundraising challenge or event. It’s also got some specific information for clubs or large groups, about how they can get more involved in the campaign. 

If you are organising a fundraising challenge and you’ve got something really exciting planned, let us know - the Mend Our Mountains team might be able to help promote your effort or even help you source some freebies. 

If you need more info, or want to get in touch, check out the fundraising page on the Mend Our Mountains site.

If you care about the landscapes you use to walk, run, climb or ride, we want to hear from you. Even if you’re not sure how you can help, we can point you in the right direction. It all counts!
