THE LAKE DISTRICT IS SPECIAL. LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY
The Lake District Pound is a community initiative, founded by local people to support the Lake District's vibrant local communities, and protect its unique landscapes. It's local people who have made this project possible - by investing their time, ideas, resources and passion for keeping the Lake District special.
"We want you to have fun experiencing our unique local culture, feel great about supporting local businesses, and enjoy keeping the Lake District special for generations to come. The Lake District Pound has been created by our community, so that you can be part of our future.
"By spending LD£ in local businesses, you can enjoy the best of our local culture - and also help keep our communities special and unique."
"The Lake District Pound is designed to celebrate what you love about this special region - it's heritage, beauty and the way you enjoy it today. We know that many people will enjoy collecting our Lake District Pound designs as much as they'll have fun spending them. If you do take a few notes home as mementos instead of spending them or exchanging them back to Sterling, your money will fund important charitable projects that look after our precious landscapes and communities throughout Cumbria.
The Lake District is loved and enjoyed by a global community of people - now all those people can play a part in our region's future. So let's have some fun!"
Ken Royall, Founder
