Could you conquer the peaks on the Lake District challenge?

Date published: 17 August 2018


We’d like to invite your more adventurous readers to join us on our Lake District challenge next Spring and help save lives and rebuild futures shattered by meningitis.

They’ll conquer eight peaks, all above 3,000 feet, over two days.

It will require energy, commitment and a positive attitude, but will reward those taking part with breath-taking views, wrapped up in a serious adventure and a weekend they’ll never forget – there’s a great team spirit amongst those taking part and many come away from the challenge having made lifelong friends.

Every step they take will also help us to fight meningitis and move us closer to our vision of a future where no one in the UK dies from this devastating disease and everyone affected gets the support they need.

If they know someone who’s had meningitis then this is a perfect way for them to show their support.

Registration is just £49 with a fundraising pledge of £500.

Accommodation, food, travel and the support of a qualified and experienced mountain leader and safety team are all included, and I’ll be there to support you throughout your fundraising journey.

It takes place between Thursday 2 and Sunday 5 May next year.

Those interested in joining us can find out more at or by emailing me at: .
