It's not just accomodation businesses that have helped us to raise over £2 million, here are some examples of other great ways to fundraise from 2006.
In 2006 The Fairground pledged to donate 50% of profits from their new Papau New Guinea Fairtrade and organic coffee to Red Squirrel conservation in Cumbria. The coffee was launched at a conservation day at Whinlatter forest. Owners Neil and Sue Ferguson said:"...we can increase Fairtrade income for farmers in Papua New Guinea and also make our won contribution as a company to an invaluable UK conservation project."

Another perfect match was made in 2006 when walking holiday company Knobbly Stick invited their customers to make a donation of £5 to local conservation projects - and owner Pete jackson even pldged to match every donation! They raised over £800.
