Who are the Friends?

Friends of the Trans Pennine Trail are people from all walks of life across the North of England and beyond who love the Trail and support its upkeep and development through regular donations. Some also volunteer to maintain the path in their area and offer practical support with projects and publicity. The Friends is a registered charity run by a voluntary Board of Trustees.

Why become a Friend?

Whether you are a regular walker, cyclist or horse rider or just visit the Trail from time to time, becoming a Friends is a great way to keep the Trail open for all both now and in the future.

Your regular donations provide the Friends Board with a reliable basic income which is used to:

  • Buy tools and equipment for maintenance volunteers
  • Provide information and publicity materials to help more people enjoy the Trail
  • Publicise the Trail at events and exhibitions across the North
  • Fund small projects to improve the Trail.

In addition, having a network of supportive Friends helps the Board apply successfully for grants and awards to undertake bigger development projects.

As a Friend, you receive a regular newsletter giving the latest information on projects, campaigns and volunteer activities, giving you an opportunity to get involved in events in your area. Regular activities include litter picks, vegetation cutbacks and checking the signs are clear. Some Friends run stands at local festivals and events. Others get involved in campaigns to protect or improve the Trail. You can choose to do as much or as little as you wish.
