Park Cliffe - How Cumbria park is fixing it for fell walkers

Park Cliffe

People walking the uplands of Cumbria can continue putting the best foot forward, thanks in part to a top-rated Lake District holiday park and its fundraising efforts.

 

Park Cliffe on the shores of Windermere has donated £1,500 this year to the Fix the Fells programme which makes vital repairs to some of the region's most popular footpaths.

 

The sum results from a busy twelve months of money-raising activities at the family-owned park, ranging from quizzes, raffles and a duck race to a bonfire night in November.

 

Park guests are also invited to make a voluntary donation when they book their stay online – an option which the vast majority take up, according to business owner Susan Dickson.
