The Lakes appeal
Help us to look after the landscape, wildlife and culture of the Lake District. Your support can make a real difference to this unique place
How the appeal adds up
- We first acquired Brandelhow in 1902 to protect for ever, for everyone
- Thanks to donations and legacies we now care for 20 per cent of the National Park
- We need your help to raise £1million each year to look after the Lakes
Help look after the Lakes
We care for 90 farms in the Lakes
At Troutbeck Park Farm we've rebuilt historic walls and planted parkland trees and juniper. Help us do more work like this.
Act now to help save our upland meadows
The loss of meadows leads to a decline in birds and insects. Your gifts could help us bring fields back to life.
Fencing to help prevent flooding
When plants are allowed to grow, wildlife increases and downstream flood risk reduces.

Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the outdoor spaces in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful landscapes and protect precious plants and wildlife. But they also ensure that future generations have places they can find freedom from everyday life, reconnect with the natural world and make memories to treasure. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
