We are proud to be one of the main organising partners of the Grand Day Out in Cumbria.
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 everyone’s 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 October 2017 and we raised another £4k.
The 2018 event date will be revealed soon. For more information see: www.granddayoutcumbria.org.uk.
These events are organised as not-for-profit events.
