We organise and run a range of events to promote access to the countryside, encourage understanding of the environment and to raise funds for our charity’s work.

If you would like us to organise an event for your organisation please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Details of some of our larger past events are listed below:

30th Anniversary Sponsored Walk

Web page header

A sponsored walk around Stocksbridge was held on 6th October 2018 to celebrate our 30 year anniversary.

There was a choice of a 12 mile walk or a shorter 6 mile walk, both of which went through ancient woodland and visited local highlights such as Whitwell Moor and the historic village of Bolsterstone. The routes also visited many of the project sites which we have worked in over the years, giving people a flavour of the work we carry out.

All participants received a commemorative metal water bottle and funds raised from the event will go towards supporting our ongoing countryside management work.

More information about the event can be seen on our event page.
