Quarry Bank appeal

Last year we launched an appeal to raise funds to help us reunite and recreate the compelling stories of Quarry Bank, one of the world’s first industrial communities and key to the story of the Industrial Revolution. Many of our groups have kindly donated towards this ongoing appeal.

Plants and gardens

Our groups last year donated hundreds of pounds towards plants for our gardens. From herbs, edible plants, and fruit and veg, to daffodils, snowdrops and pollen rich plants for bees - our places just wouldn't look the same without them.

Our ongoing appeal to raise funds to repair footpaths in the Lake District has received great support from our groups. We are looking for £300,000 to repair 2km of footpath which has suffered from erosion over time. You can find out more about our appeal and how to donate here.
