Volunteers helping carry out guided walks on behalf of the Lake District National Park Authority will be wearing walking gear
provided by Sprayway.
The outdoor clothing
maker will provide protective outdoor clothing
to such as waterproof jackets
to the 150-strong team of volunteers, the authority has revealed.
National park volunteer co-ordinator Tim Duckmanton said: "I'm confident that we now have the best protective clothing available to us and this coming year the volunteer service will be better equipped and clothed than it has ever been before."
It is the first time that the national park has entered into a sponsorship agreement of this type and further marketing and promotional collaborations between the manufacturer and the national park may follow.
Sprayway products are available at Go Outdoors stores.
Forthcoming guided walks aided by volunteers in the Lake District include a 'Map and Compass day' event aimed at improving navigation skills, to be held at Glenridding on April 3rd.
