Montane pledges 1% of website sales to BMC ‘Mend our Mountains: Make One million’ campaign to help repair and preserve Britain’s hills and mountains across all 15 National parks.
 

Mend Our Mountains

The BMC’s first ‘Mend Our Mountains’ campaign was launched in an attempt to raise funds to help repair some of the most well used pathways in the UK which underpin our experience of the great outdoors. The result exceeded expectation, and over £100,000 was raised ensuring increased access to some of Britain’s most popular peaks and provided support to outdoor preservation schemes across the country.
 
This time around the target is an ambitious £1 million. Montane, however, have never been ones to shy away from a challenge.  They have rallied alongside their BMC partners, and they pledge to donate 1% of website sales over the course of the year.  Montane's Head of Marketing Terry Stephenson announced:
 
"We are pledging 1% of our website sales to this worthy cause, hoping to 
improve and preserve these magnificent places for years to come."
 
Furthermore, Mend Our Mountains highlighted the pressure which many national parks and public bodies are under.  The UK’s love affair with its outdoor spaces is growing, and with that comes an even greater requirement for infrastructure and education. BMC's Hill Walking Development Officer Carey Davies recognised the importance of the brands' involvement in setting a standard for other industry leaders to take an active interest in preserving these environments:
 
“Having the support of Montane is a great boost for 'Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million.' The support of recognised and trusted brands like Montane and other partners shows the outdoor industry is responding to this call and rallying round to do its bit for the places we all benefit from.”
