This year the Lake District National Park is offering a Christmas present with a difference giving you the chance to sponsor a piece of the spectacular landscape. A new online sponsor system where you can sponsor bridges, gates, signs and other work within the National Park has just been launched.
National Park Project Ranger, Phil Clague explains the benefits of the new scheme: “We maintain more than 3,100km of paths and bridleways. Millions of visitors, combined with our Cumbrian climate, means we are constantly carrying out improvements and maintenance.”
“This new, online system will allow you to choose a location or item which is special to you, with an option to have a small plaque, showing initials and dates. Alternatively, you can sponsor one of our larger projects, or the valuable work of our apprentices and rangers. You can pay for your donation online, and choose a message that will be shared on our website’s message wall.”
“It is easy to use, and will provide people with the opportunity to sponsor something in a place which might be special to them, perhaps in memory of a loved one, to celebrate a special event such as a wedding or birthday – or even as a unique Christmas gift.”
