A Grand Day Out in Cumbria

Great effort everyone and huge thanks to everyone who came along to support the event and take part. Massive thanks also to the team of volunteers and marshalls who were all amazing!

What is the grand day out?

The Grand Day Out in Cumbria #1 was  a county-wide fundraising day and general celebration held on January 16th 2016 it was truly a wonderful day and you were all fantastic and we raised an amazing £21,000 for the Cumbria Community Foundation and Mountain Rescue teams. There were fell walks / sports / music / laughter / eating / drinking and all sorts of fun raising funds for the Cumbria Community Foundation Flood Appeal, Mountain Rescue and other voluntary rescue services who were so important during the floods in December 2015.

Following the success of this event we held a follow up event in Langdale in October 2016 and our exciting future plans can be found on our About Us page.
