Climbing 542 Lakeland Summits in 2016 for Cancer Research UK

Cheque presentation


Watch the video! – with thanks to great nephew Dylan Chattle


Hooray!! Today, Saturday 29 October, I visited the FINAL SUMMIT – Carron Crag, in Grizedale Forest between Windermere and Coniston.

Not only did I have the privilege of walking with over 50 good friends but also with me were Mark Richards (‘Fellranger’ of the Cicerone series of Guide Books) and the man himself, Mr Bill Birkett, who has given his name to the 540+ summits I’ve climbed this year.

Also present were several people who had found my ‘summit cards’ over the last few months and it was an absolute pleasure to welcome them along.

I’ll post more details tomorrow but for now I just wanted to say that the Big Challenge has been successfully completed. This means, of course, that if you’ve pledged a donation, it’s now due (!!) – have a look at the HOW TO DONATE link in the menu at the top of the page if you’re not sure what to do next, and please don’t forget Gift Aid if you pay tax.

Thank you! – together we will beat cancer sooner.
