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 organised as a response to the Storm Desmond Floods of December 2015.

With your help, we raised an amazing £21,000 for the Cumbria Community Foundation and Mountain Rescue teams. There were fell walks, outdoor sports, a raffle, live music, laughter, eating, drinking and all sorts of fun, all while raising funds for the Cumbria Community Foundation Flood Appeal, Mountain Rescue and other voluntary rescue services who were so important during the floods.

Following the success of this event we held a follow up event in Langdale in October 2016 and we raised another £2.5k. More info can be found on our About Us page.
