Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million

Last Tuesday I decided to do something a little different. Having spent the last few Tuesday debating whether the weather would hold out for an evening at the crag, it was somehow quite liberating to know that I would be heading to Mam Tor come what may.

It turned out to be a glorious evening and I joined a team of ~70 volunteers to marshal the hundreds of outdoors enthusiasts who came to light up the great ridge from Mam Tor to Lose Hill.

The Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million events are a joint venture between the British Mountaineering Council and the Camping and Caravanning Club, with a target of raising £1m to help repair footpaths throughout Britain’s national parks.

Walkers strung out along the ridge, from Lose Hill to Mam Tor, forming a trail of lights using their headtorches.

Even if you didn’t have chance to attend, you can still help the fundraising by purchasing some of the much more spectacular official photos that were taken on the night. Visit the BMC website for more details.

“All profits from sales of the prints will go towards the Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million appeal, and help to repair exponentially worsening erosion damage in some of our most treasured landscapes”
