EMERGE Food is organising a big green challenge - quite literally! - to raise monies for our Manchester FareShare operation (redistributing in-date quality food to organisations supporting vulnerable individuals locally): Are you up to the challenge? Fancy walking up the highest mountain in England? In the beautiful lake district in sunny May.
We will be organising transport (coaches/minibuses depending on numbers) to leave central Manchester early on Saturday 9th May and returning later in the evening. Obviously there will be an option to stay over (we will be finding out more info for folk in the coming weeks).
The walk will involve either Scafell Pike or an easier option for those less keen on the distance and in both cases we intend to provide leaders and guidance (maps/routes) depending on how experienced participants are. You need to have a pair of comfortable supportive shoes at least and preferably walking boots, waterproofs and your own food/water. We intend to supply first aid and hopefully first aiders as well as a team of stewards at different stages/with groups.
Still very much at planning stage and I'm open to ideas and suggestions, seeking organisers/mountain leaders and willing participants will be producing the sponsorship forms in near future.
Hope you will join us in having some fun in the countryside in order to help with this brilliant inner-city project helping those less fortunate.
Feel free to contact me with any questions/suggestions,
