Kendal Mountain Festival and The Lake District Foundation are excited to announce an innovative partnership to raise funds for conservation. Festival goers are able to donate to a new fund hosted by the Foundation, supporting the joint mission to look after our natural world and inspire others to share the many benefits of life outdoors.
Donations will be split between World Land Trust, local community conservation projects and projects involving young people. With the Festival attracting over 16,000 visitors in 2018 the potential to make a real difference is enormous.
Sarah Swindley CEO of the LDF says:
“We hope to work with the team and supporters of the Festival for the long term, developing a fund that can achieve transformational change, throughout the region and beyond. We know that our values align and we have a shared passion for inspiring others to protect and experience the wonder of the natural world. The Lake District has always been a catalyst for change and progress in outdoor adventure and we think that there are many opportunities for this partnership to develop.
Jacqui Scott, CEO of the Kendal Mountain Festival says:
“We are delighted to align the Festival with the Lake District Foundation. The generation of these funds will provide us with new opportunities to engage with new conservation projects whilst inspiring young people; who we believe have the intuition, creativity and bravery to find solutions to protect the environment. We know that our audience are passionate about protecting mountain landscapes and enabling others to experience their beauty and will be delighted to support this partnership and help with the generation of funds to care for these precious environments.”
