Have fun and help out

Can you help us get people running, riding, dog walking, crag climbing, face painting, puddle jumping, tree climbing and generally jumping up and down about our Woods for the Future Peak District Appeal?

The appeal has already raised £16,000 but we’d like to get every club, group or family who loves and visits the Peak District to set aside an afternoon or just an hour or two to raise money for our future woodlands by doing something they like to do anyway! 

It could be an organised event, like a club run, a group ride or an evening scout, guide or community group activity, or it could be a couple of families setting up their own sponsored puddle jump - all we ask is have a think, then have a go! 

We were delighted that Wirksworth Running Club selected the Peak District Appeal ‘Woods for the Future’ as their chosen charity – and both really impressed and grateful for the £1200 raised from their annual 10K and Fun Run.

You could set up an online donation page (or just go round your runners or puddle jumpers with a cap in hand) - just make sure everyone has lots of fun, and then send us your donation AND tell us about it on social media to inspire everyone else too.

We know Peak District people support lots of charities and good causes, but with ash dieback arriving and conservation of our landscape, wildlife and peatlands more important than ever, we’re going to need everyone’s help now and in the future. So if you can do your event once a year (or once a month?!) even better.

To help you along, here's a link to our Fundraise for Us page, where you can request a fundraising pack. 

Thanks - and have fun!
