Save the date!! Crag Clean Up 2022: Saturday 13th August
Back for 2022, the Crag Clean Up is a simple event designed to include as much fun as possible whilst also helping to clean up the Peak.
We love the outdoors, and we are fully aware how much we benefit from all it has to offer. People travel from all over the world to enjoy the Peak District and we want to help look after it.
How the Crag Clean Up 2022 works
Every year Outside runs a crag clean up based on a very simple idea. We send our staff out to pick litter all over the Peak District, from crags, footpaths, beauty spots and laybys. We kindly ask that friends, family and customers help with this, during their own day out on the hill. We like to thank everyone who arrives at the shop toting a bag of rubbish by hosting a free BBQ, with beers and soft drinks, outside the shop in the afternoon and into the evening; plus there are spot prizes awarded by our sponsors.
We provide bin bags and gloves from the shop (or you can bring your own from home), and while you are out on your adventures that day, simply collect what you can and bring it back to us. We will add it to the pile, and you enjoy the food, drink and merriment, and maybe even win a prize. The local council collects it all on Monday morning for safe disposal.
Our sponsors, Black Diamond will be providing prizes for the Crag Clean Up day, and we've had a generous donation from Darn Tough so participants will go home with a new pair of socks (whilst stock lasts)!
Outside Peak District Volunteering
Outside staff regularly lend a hand with maintaining the areas we love. Our sponsors Black Diamond have also made a generous donation to our Peak Park volunteer programme, which will enable us to supply the materials and the people power to help improve pathways and infrastructure for us all. We aim to provide Outside's help to the Peak District monthly, which is a fraction of what it does for us!
We really hope you can all join us for the Crag Clean Up and we look forward to raising a glass to your efforts.
