A Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team vehicle at Llyn Llydaw
Whether you’ve already enjoyed your day on Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), or have yet to do so, why not consider giving something back?
A win-win way is to support the local economy by spending in local shops, cafés and pubs, etc, or by paying to stay overnight, whether in guest houses or on camp sites.
On Snowdon itself, you can help by simply picking up litter on the paths or at the summit.
The Snowdonia Society is a registered charity committed to looking after Snowdonia, and they sometimes assist with work on Snowdon. If you wish to donate to their work, have a look at their donation page. If you would like to volunteer with the Snowdonia Society, have a look at their volunteering page.
The National Trust owns a large part of Snowdon, and path maintenance costs thousands of pounds annually. If you wish to donate to the work of the National Trust, have a look at their fund-raising page.
Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team is the main rescue team on Snowdon. They are a fully voluntary organisation and respond to mountain incidents on Snowdon and the surrounding mountains. The team is on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; they attend over 200 call-outs a year, and yet have no official funding, relying as they do on donations from members of the public to carry out this essential life-saving rescue service. If you wish to donate to their work, have a look at their donation page.
If you wish to donate to the work of the Snowdonia National Park Authority, you can add a donation when buying anything from their online shop, or make an online donation on their donation page where you can specify where you would like your money to go (e.g. path maintenance, conservation, heritage, general). Or for something more specific you could contact them directly – tel: 01766 770274, e-mail: email@example.com
If you feel you would like to do voluntary work for the National Park generally, have a look at their volunteering page.
