Cash from pub meals and a book of trails will help maintain some of the Yorkshire Dales’ most popular walking routes.
Two donations to Three Peaks projects boosted the scheme by £450, helping national park bosses with the upkeep of paths in the area.
The Lion pub in Settle donated 15p from each order for its main course meal Butcher’s Board, with more than 1,600 meals bringing in £250.
And Tony and Chris Grogan from Saltaire-based publishers Skyware in West Yorkshire decided a proportion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy of Dales Rail Trails would be donated to the Friends of the Three Peaks, a group run by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
Chris has passed on a cheque for £200 generated from sales of the book over the spring and summer.
The book was funded by the authority’s sustainable development fund – which is managed by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust – and has sold more than 650 copies since going on sale at the beginning of the year priced £8.99p.
It contains 32 walks from stations along the railway line as well as a guide to the popular, 24-mile [39km] Three Peaks Challenge route and details of the 48-mile [77km] Six Peaks Trail, which links stations from Settle to Kirkby Stephen.
The Lion’s manager Ian Pilcher said: “I think it’s really good to support a local organisation that conserves the area.
“Most of our customers come to walk in the Three Peaks, and the menu choice proved very popular. We’ll do the same again over the coming winter.”
Chris Grogan said: “I’m very happy that we are able to donate to the Friends of the Three Peaks, and that sales of the book have gone so well.
“It has only been on sale since the spring so we’re hopeful that we can make further contributions,” she added.
Steve Hastie, the national park authority’s Three Peaks Project manager, said: “The great thing for me is that these fundraising ideas came from Ian, Chris and Tony.
“Our corporate Friends have really started to get to grips with the challenges facing the wonderful Three Peaks and they are making very useful, positive contributions.”
The Yorkshire Three Peaks, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, attract thousands of walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts each year.
