4th September - 3am Meet in Wasdale


Join a fully guided sunrise walk up Scafell Pike, all in aid of CancerCare


Our journey up to the 'top of England will start in Wasdale.We'll ascend via the Brown Tongue path to the summit of the highest mountain in England under darkness, with the aim of reaching the summit just in time to watch the sun rise from the east. After enjoying this golden moment we will descend back down via the same route, enjoying views of the deepest lake in England as we descend.


CancerCare is an independent charity which provides free professional therapy for people struggling to cope with the devastation caused by a cancer diagnosis or bereavement.

The charity has centres in Lancaster, Morecambe Kendal and Barrow and offers a wide variety of support services including counselling and complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, reflexology and hypnotherapy. It also runs creative group activities such as art and woodwork and physical therapy groups including Pilates and yoga.

CancerCare has a dedicated service for children and young people with specialist counsellors trained in play therapy and a weekly peer support group in Lancaster and Kendal called Re-Fresh which is run by youth workers.

As well as mutual support Re-Fresh provides “fun therapy” and runs a full programme of activities for young people during the school holidays including glamping, outward bound weekends and theme park trips.

CancerCare services are provided free of charge to the client and it receives more than 90% of the funding it needs to be able to do this, through public donations.
