Book your place for this year’s community hike

Following successful trips to Mt Snowdon, Ben Nevis and the 3 Peaks we are pleased to announce another community hiking trip. This year’s hike will be in the beautiful Lake District. We will be walking England’s tallest mountain; Scafell Pike (978m), on Saturday 16 July followed by Hellvellyn (950m) on Sunday 17 July.

5 Happy hikersThe trip is open to those living in LS10 or LS11. You will need a reasonable level of fitness and a good pair of shoes to take part. You do not need to be ‘super-fit’.

Participants can come along for a day trip on either the Saturday or the Sunday. Alternatively they can make a weekend of it and camp over. We will be leaving Leeds at 7.15am by minibus and hope to return to Leeds by 8pm. The cost is £7 for transport. Camping will cost a further £10 if you wish to join us for the weekend. There are discounts available for children and those sharing a tent.  If you would like to come but feel finance may be an issue please get in touch.

The trip is made possible by Hunslet Hawks, The Salvation Army and Aspiring Communities. If other groups want to get involved and support, get in touch….especially if they have access to a minibus.
