Snowdonia tourism scheme 'good business', says owner

A pilot project asking tourists to put money into communities they visit has raised enough to train nearly 50 young people in outdoor skills and conservation, organisers have said.

Snowdonia Giving asks businesses in the national park to press visitors for a small contribution added to bills.

Launched six months ago, so far 28 companies have signed up.

More than £3,000 in donations have been raised, which will go to a Snowdonia Society training programme.

Josh Feilden runs a bunkhouse lodge, which is one of the firms taking part in the scheme, and said it makes good sense for him, his business and his customers.
