raised of £500 target by 39 supporters

    Weʼve raised £695 to fund the 'Lakes Litter Initiative' through July and August. #LakesLitterInitiative will be litter picking in the Lake District

    Ullswater, Cumbria
    Funded on Friday, 25th December 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Throughout the past few months, one or two of us have been quietly picking up litter in our local areas of the Lake District. We are facing a crisis point, not least due to the Covid-19 lockdown easing and the increased in 'staycations' this Summer.

    We have been aiming to work colaborative with authorities and organisations on this issue. Our back ground tends to be in Outdoor Education, hence engaging with people in the outdoors, who currently maybe visiting The Lakes for the first time.

    I believe in simple effective action. Basically I pick up rubbish, but I try engage positively to encourage others to help.

    Whilst I'll happily contiune doing my bit as I have always done, others have been asking how they can help? One answer is to, 'Go outside and pick up some stuff'. Others, who live away may care to donate some cash.

    In short a few pounds will enable me to keep doing what I do. It will put fuel in my car, buy me more gloves, bags, hand gel and equipment. It will allow me to do more and hopefully help others and fund a longer term project to engage and educate an increasing numbers of visitors.

    You can find out more of my activities on my facebook page - Joe Faulkner - with a new SocMedia account out soon - Lakes Litter Initiative.
