Wainwright Society Fundraising | 2017

In 2017 our main beneficiary was Fix the Fells. Having selected AW’s Pictorial Guide The Far Eastern Fells for our 2017 Challenge the funds we raised will help repair the severely eroded route from Long Stile leading to the summit of High Street

We also made a further donation of £3,000 to Animal Rescue Cumbria from the sales of our Encounters With Wainwright book, bringing the total so far from this project to £5,000, and donations were also made totalling £750 to an AW tribute on the Ullswater Way and a plaque dedicated to AW at Patterdale Post Office.
