Friday 4th November
Once again a team of intrepid hikers from Raby Estates will be raising money for the Institute of Cancer Research by participating in a “Human Mountain Endeavour” on the Lakeland fells on Friday 4th November 2022.
One third of us will be touched by cancer in our lifetime. The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) is an academic working body based at the Royal Marsden Hospital. ICR employs over 300 scientists and has taken more drugs into clinical trials in the last decade than any other organisation worldwide. We are therefore proud to be supporting such a worthy cause again.
This annual event involves teams from businesses located across the north of England ascending Lakeland’s highest mountains in early winter conditions. The event has raised more than £1.75 million for the Institute and other charities over the past 34 years. With your help we would like to make this another record-breaking year.
This year the Raby Estates Team will be tackling the fells around High Street in the north east of the National Park. Our route will begin at Hartsop, ascending High Street via Stoney Cove Pike and Thornthwaite Crag before returning over The Knot and descending to Hayeswater and Hartsop. It’ll be a long day in the hills.
