Here is an extract from the Facebook page of A Grand Day Out In Cumbria.
Exact location(s) and details to be confirmed. This is a county-wide fundraising day on January 16th 2016 (with a follow up later in 2016) with fell walks/sports/music/laughter/eating/drinking/fun stuff to raise funds for the Cumbria Community Foundation flood appeal: http://campaign.justgiving.com/charity/cumbriafoundation/cumbriafloodappeal2015 and the mountain rescue and other voluntary rescue services who were so valuable during the floods. There will be lots of activities in lots of communities. The whole idea is to have fun, get outdoors and support our beautiful county and its communities. We hope to get lots of businesses on board and have some amazing raffle prizes and lots of other fun surprises! Watch this space for more details but please sign up/share/post encourage your friends to register interest, the event will be very much focused around supporting local affected town and villages as well as enjoying the amazing Lake District Scenery we know and love. Details will be revealed soon…! Any offers of help/support/prizes etc gratefully recieved: http://goo.gl/forms/6YIKo3cCcX
