Donating to Fix the Fells

It's no great stretch to say that Chia Charge was conceived out on the trails. It was our love of trail running that led to our desire for a tasty, easy to eat energy bar, which would allow us to stay out there longer. In turn those flapjacks have fueled 1000's of runners, mountain bikers and explorers alike, most of whom like us enjoy nothing more than tearing up and down Britain's fantastic country side.

All those runners and riders though take their toll on the fells they run and ride across though, fortunately the incredible rangers and volunteers over at Fix the Fells have us covered. Fix the Fells have repaired over 200 sections of paths in the last ten years. And they show no signs of slowing either with 120 further repairs planned for the next ten year, all while continuing to maintain the existing network. They only use quality and sustainable methods and tools to repair the fells and a combination of prevention and restoration techniques.

To support their hard work we at Chia Charge have donated £1000 as part of our 1% for the Planet pledge (more about that here). If you would like to learn more about Fix the Fells you can find their page here.
