Conquer Lake District are a local business with a passion for the outdoors and believe it is their responsibility to promote, protect and preserve our incredible National Park. Their beautifully designed patches and gifts are eye catching and make the perfect keepsake for treasured memories of a Lake District visit. If you haven’t yet seen their products, take a look here.
Conquer Lake District partnered with the Lake District Foundation in January 2019, and decided to donate 5% from every single product that they sold, both on line and in their 40 stockists, raising an impressive £2,013.41 in one year. They also donated T shirts to the Lake District Foundation for raffle prizes, enabling even more funds to be raised, and designed a beautiful bespoke patch for the Lake District Foundation to give their new supporters as a thank you gift.
Owner and Founder Caroline says “Through our quality goods we aim to inspire people to have fun and celebrate the adventure whilst also caring for our majestic and delicate landscape. We may be a small business, but we are proud to have made such a huge commitment and it was important to us to build a charitable element into our strategy from the beginning.”
The funds raised by Conquer Lake District will be used to care for the spectacular wildlife, landscape and cultural heritage of the Lake District and provided financial support to small but effective projects, see some examples here.
Sarah Smith, LDF Operations Manager, says “It is so important that we are able to partner with a local and sustainable businesses whose values align with ours. At the Lake District Foundation, we consider the impact of everything that we do, so it is fantastic to be able to work with a sustainable company like Conquer Lake District. Their support makes a huge difference.”
Caroline adds, “We believe in making quality products that connect people with the projects that care for our majestic yet delicate National Park. It is wonderful to see people returning to the Lake District and enjoying the great outdoors following the Coronavirus restrictions, and we are proud that we can help them to give something back too.”
