EVERY LD£ KEEPS THE LAKE DISTRICT SPECIAL
Love spending LD£ to support our communities
When you spend LD£ in local businesses who accept the currency, you know you’re supporting the local businesses who keep our communities special and unique.
By choosing to spend money in these businesses, you’re ensuring that much more of the money you spend (as much as ten times more!) stays right here in our local economy - helping to keep the Lake District a special place to visit and a great place to live.
Loving the LD£ designs?
A local currency is a way of celebrating the unique identity of a place. Our Lake District Pound designs and themes are intended to do just that. 2018 is just the start - we can’t wait to celebrate your love of the Lake District with new designs every year.
If you enjoy collecting LD£ as much as you enjoy spending them, every LD£ you keep will go towards charitable projects that conserve our landscapes and support local communities throughout Cumbria. All proceeds from LD£ are divided between Cumbria Community Foundation and the Lake District Foundation - it's a lovely way to give back to the landscape you love.
