Support the upkeep of one of England's iconic upland landscapes with your face! ... and help keep the Roaches Rover running FACE OF THE ROACHES

Leek Delivery stage

pledged of £1,141

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

On May 1st 2013 Staffordshire Wildlife Trust took over the management of the Staffordshire Roaches in the Peak District National Park.

The Roaches are internationally famous for rock climbing but are also home to lots of wildlife including the magnificent Peregrine Falcon which nests each year high in the rocky crags.

Hundreds of thousands of people visit the Roaches each year. We're giving you (or at least your picture) an opportunity to be up on the Roaches every day of the year.

All we need is a digital picture (of you, your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, kids, dog, granny, dentist etc.) and a donation of at least £5 (or more please!) to include in a photomosaic of our badger logo which will be stuck onto the "Roaches Rover" the pick-up used by Jeff and Eva, our Wardens.

Your donation will help us keep the Roaches Rover running.

We'll even post an image of the photomosaic on our web site for you to download so you can spot yourself.

Great idea for an unusual present!

What we'll deliver:

  • conservation grazing
  • educating children about the importance of moorlands
  • fixing footpaths
  • ..... and loads more
  • improving access
  • protecting wildlife habitats

Why it's a great idea:

It is really important that we protect and manage our moorland.

Over 75% of the WORLDS moorland is found in Britain. Protecting our moorland is as important as protecting the rainforests.

Moorland is particularly important for birds such as the curlew, snipe and lapwing which have declined alarmingly in the UK.

Moorland that is actively managed is much much better for wildlife than moorland that is left alone.

With your help we can make sure the Roaches are managed for wildlife while also ensuring there is great access for the many thousands of climbers, walkers and tourists that visit each year.

Steps to get it done:

  • Your donation will go directly towards the upkeep of the Roaches Rover

Please share our project with your friends, relatives, colleagues, man in the newsagent and anyone else you meet!
