SOCKTOBER: FIX THE FELLS WITH SMARTWOOL

This Socktober we've teamed up with hiking, ski and running socks experts Smartwool for a charitable project which aims to raise money to help fund repairs of England's highest mountain: Scafell Pike.

View from Scafell

Every year thousands climb this iconic mountain to experience the stunning views it has to offer, but unfortunately due to the popularity of these hikes, pathways are becoming increasingly eroded at an alarming rate.

How you can help

In an aim to combat this and raise funds to aid in the repair and restoration of these pathways we will donate £1 for every pair of Smartwool socks sold to Fix The Fells. Fix the Fells is a partnership programme between the National Trust, the Lake District National Park, Natural England, Friends of the Lake District and the Lake District Foundation. The aim of the Fix the Fells partnership is to protect the spectacular Lakeland fells from erosion and damage by repairing and maintaining the upland paths of the Lake District.
