Why does your contribution matter?

If we are successful in raising £10,000* of donations this could unlock £15,000 worth of labour from our partners, including the rangers of the National Trust, Dorset Countryside Service, Devon County Council and Cornwall Council. 

Each step that is replaced will be made of long-lasting local oak or sweet chestnut and cut to six inch high step boards. Using hardwood materialsmeansthey will last longer, reduce the need for preservation treatments andimproves the overall quality of the Path.
