Over £200,000 Awarded To More Than 600 Incredible Projects
We are the charity that helps people Go Nice Places Do Good Things.
1% of Alpkit sales go towards supporting individuals and direct action projects. We’re incredibly proud to see the effect that these small steps can make. Our support takes the form of direct action by giving our financial support, publicity, advice or resource to help projects get off the ground. We love to support projects that champion education, participation, environment, diversity and health.
