Wainwright Society Fundraising | 2010

Funds this year were raised primarily for Mountain Rescue Teams and Fix the Fells. Our Challenge this year was ‘The Best of the Rest’, which focussed on The Howgills, Limestones and Outlying Fells, the money raised from the Challenge being donated to Fix the Fells. The cheque was presented at the end of the 80th Anniversary journey to Orrest Head on June 7 2010 where we traced AW’s initial trip from Blackburn to Orrest Head, members dressing in period clothing.

The money raised from the calendar sales was donated to Lake District and Pennine Mountain Rescue Teams.

We also donated to Workington Lifeboat as a result of an auction for an item of Wainwright memorabilia which was donated to The Society.
