Got a business and want to get involved?

Visitor Giving is a simple way of inviting voluntary donations from visitors who feel inspired to put something back into looking after the fells they love.

Visitor Giving in Cumbria is delivered by Fix the Fells partner, the Lake District Foundation, and over £500,000 has been donated so far to help repair and maintain the upland paths which so many people come to walk each year.  Businesses can help to promote responsible and sustainable tourism by joining Visitor Giving!
