Join us for LED’s Blencathra Fundraising Challenge 2019

Join Val and friends for a day in the hills raising money for our work in Nepal and Peru.

This year’s LED Fundraising Event will be held on Saturday 18th May and we’ll be based in the village of Mungrisdale, in the northern fells of the Lake District.

We are collecting donations, sponsorship and registration payments via our page on Just Giving: LED Blencathra Fundraising Challenge 2019.


Saturday 18th May 2019.


A 16 mile hike over Blencathra, one of the Lake District’s most beautiful mountains (a shorter walk has been planned for those who prefer) with an optional evening dinner.


The start and finish will be at Near Howe just outside the village of Mungrisdale (Grid Reference 373288). We will advise of where to park, if not at Near Howe, closer to the event. We will be registering walkers at Near Howe on the day (we will signpost this).

The maps covering the route are OS Explorer Map OL5 The English Lakes: North-Eastern Area (Penrith, Patterdale & Caldbeck) (1:25,000) and Landranger 90 Penrith & Keswick (1:50,000).


  • £20 per person
  • An additional £25 per person if you would like to join us for dinner after the event (this will include food and some drinks). We have enough capacity for around 50 people (please indicate on the registration form if you want to attend the dinner).


For this Challenge all walkers MUST be over 14. If you are under the age of 16 your parent or legal guardian must complete the “Under 16s” details on the registration form and you must be accompanied by your parent or legal guardian at all times.
