Thanks to the huge success of the BMC Mend Our Mountains crowdfunding campaign, we have decided to keep the campaign running on our website to continue raising much needed funds for upland path repair projects across the UK.
So far we have worked with eight national parks, helping to raise over £100,000 to fund repairs to damaged paths on some of Britain’s most popular peaks, including Snowdon, Scafell Pike, Ingleborough, Kinder Scout and part of the Brecon Beacons Horseshoe, as well as contribute towards vital repairs to moorland on Dartmoor, Exmoor and the North York Moors. However, there are many more mountain and moorland paths that needed a financial boost.
Mend Our Mountains has highlighted the pressure which many national parks and public bodies are under due to cuts and squeezed budgets and the BMC will continue to raise this issue with Parliamentarians. But it isn’t just about the money – it’s also about raising awareness of the need to look after our landscapes. These hills are ours to climb and ours to care for.

Mend Our Mountains relies on donations from climbers and hill walkers to fund vital mountain conservation work. You can donate any amount using the PayPal button below. Most credit and debit cards are also accepted.
News and feature articles will shortly appear on the BMC website highlighting which projects have been supported and how your money has contributed.
The Access and Conservation Trust
The BMC's charity – the BMC Access & Conservation Trust – promotes sustainable access to cliffs, mountains and open countryside by facilitating education and conservation projects across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
By educating climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers to enjoy outdoor recreation while minimising their impact on the landscape, conserving the UK’s upland resources, and campaigning for improved access rights, ACT enables future generations to continue to enjoy outdoor activities and the physical, mental and social benefits they bring to individual lives and society in general.
