Peak District walks - patches
We have designed some lovely Peak District iron-on patches, perfect for backpacks, clothes, blankets, cushions or wherever else you want to put them.
It will be a great way to keep track of all the awesome walks you’ve done and places you’ve visited in the Peak District National Park.
The patches will make wonderful presents for both adults and children or you can simply treat yourself.
One of the ideas is that you can encourage kids to get more excited about walking and exploring the Peak District by collecting the patches.
The patches are iconic Peak District hills, landmarks and locations, all designed by Laura from Laura Hodgkinson Creative.
raising funds for charity
Our badges will not only make great gifts but £1.75 for EVERY patch will also go to charity. (The total raised will be updated monthly – see below). The idea is to give something back to the volunteers who are there to take care of us if we ever have an accident on the hills or out walking.
There are seven Mountain Rescue team that covers the Peak District (Edale, Derby, Buxton, Kinder, Glossop, Oldham and Woodhead)
However, since Edale is one of the most popular places to start a walk in the UK, that also means that the local mountain rescue team are one of the busiest teams in the UK, which is why I’ve chosen Edale Mountain Rescue Team to raise funds for.
Edale Mountain Rescue is a registered charity (no. 1138626). The team of volunteers go out on emergency calls in the Peak District at all times of day covering a wide area, including Kinder Scout, Mam Tor but also places further south like Chee Dale and Padley Gorge so they are kept very busy.
The sale of these patches will only donate a small amount but the idea is that seeing the patches on backpacks whilst out hiking will create conversations, therefore increase the knowledge of Edale Mountain Rescue Team and the great job that they do. If you’d rather make a direct donation then you can do that via their Just Giving page.
