Walking group pays for non-carbon footprint
Bookmark and Share
A walking group has made a donation to a charity who repair Lake District footpaths in recognition of the wear and tear its activities may have on them.

Kendal Fellwalkers has given £100 to Fix the Fells, who rely on charitable donations but get extra money from the National Lottery, which triples everything it receives.

Group member Ken Taylor said: "We are frequent users of the high Lakeland fells and so are acutely aware of the problems of path erosion, as well as the good work, which Fix the Fells does."

Projects by Fix the Fells to mend paths do more than just seek to create better routes for those coming to the national park with their walking boots and Ordnance Survey maps.

It has also linked up with groups like Fairbridge, which works with troubled 13 to 25 year-olds from inner city areas.

One recent project saw youngsters from the Tyne and Wear area undertaking footpath repair work and experiencing countryside they had never seen before.
