Help keep the coast alive 

Building sandcastles and paddling in the sea - what if all we had left of the coast were memories? As seas rise and storms rage, our shifting shores are transformed. Each coastal mile costs £3,000 a year to maintain and we need your help to keep the coast alive for everyone.

Sharing the love of places

Yvonne, Mam Tor 

Reaching the summit of Mam Tor for the first time had a profound effect on Yvonne. Not only did it test her strength and courage, it took her back to her childhood in Jamaica. Yvonne is now a regular visitor, and the quiet stillness of the landscape never fails to bring her peace.
