On Tuesday 5 May are will be joining charities from across the work for Giving Tuesday Now. A day of generosity and support for our charities in response to the unprecedented need caused by Covid-19.

Giving Tuesday Now is a day in which you can join people everywhere to support the charities and good causes you believe in. For South West Lakes this means that we will be able to continue the care for yours lakes, habitats and the species that call them home alongside providing access for people both on and off the water.
