Fix the Fells – the partnership programme which repairs and maintains our upland paths – is up for a grant of 30,000 euros from the European Outdoor Conservation Association.

It's a public vote running from 14th – 28th March.

CLICK HERE and cast your VOTE to secure vital funding to helping to keep our spectacular Lake District landscape fighting fit for everyone to enjoy.

'Fix the Fells' has been shortlisted for possible funding by The European Outdoor Conservation Association. This association received 55 applications for funding this year, so 'Fix the Fells' is already over the first hurdle, but now needs the public's help if it is to secure vital sums. These would enable it to continue and extend its great work in fixing worn out fell paths that have been eroded over time and which cause other environmental issues.

The EOCA has put all short-listed projects in the spotlight and organised a public vote to determine where nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts feel funding should be allocated. The projects getting most votes will be EOCA funded this year, so every vote 'Fix the Fells' can secure will help move it further up the poll rankings.

Nurture Lakeland's Fundraising Development Officer, Ruth Kirk says: "We really need Cumbria to get behind 'Fix the Fells' if we are to secure this vital funding. Every vote will count, so we are asking those who love Cumbria to vote themselves, ask friends and family to do the same. Please Tweet and Facebook about it and make the message viral so that anyone who loves Cumbria can head to the EOCA web link and put their tick against our project.

"This is a big appeal to encourage people to do something that takes little time and effort, but which can make a gigantic difference to the future of our landscape. By attracting this funding, we can do everything possible to ensure that Cumbria's scenery remains as inspiring for future generations as it is for us today. All we ask is that people get online and make their voice heard".

Voting will close on March 28, so get in quickly and register your choice.
