Give back to our stunning environment:
Alot of hard work, care and attention goes into keeping the Lake District National Park in tip-top condition, so that you – and future generations – can
enjoy its beauty for years to come. If you feel inspired to help in any way and know of others who feel the same, then this gift is right up your street.
Local charity, ‘Friends of the Lake District
’, has some cracking ideas for
gifts that will also help to sustain our natural environment.
There's a choice of six gifts available: restoring a haymeadow, planting a native tree sapling, rebuilding a metre of dry stone wall, repairing an eroded
footpath, or planting an established tree. A unique gift is a bed for bees for 9 months in their bee hotel, helping to save solitary bees which are
vanishing from Britain.
The charity will also send a greetings card and certificate to your gift recipient, together with information about your gift, including the area in which
it will be sited. Prices start from £12 but make sure to order quickly to ensure your gift arrives before 25th December!
