Learning Resources takes on Walk for Hope

Published on: 28th September 2018

A team of fund raisers will be walking the Langdale skyline this weekend in aid of a brain tumour charity. 

On 29th September a team of walkers from Learning Resources, including MD Dennis Blackmore, will be taking on the Langdale skyline, walking the iconic Crinkle Crags and the Langdale Pikes in aid of Brain Tumour Research.

The much loved Langdale valley gives easy access to a number of classic mountains, with their rocky and rugged peaks being deservedly popular with walkers and rock climbers alike. It is home to the Langdale Pikes, a group of summits which provide a well-known and easily identifiable skyline, even from far way.

Part of a Walk of Hope for Brain Tumour Research, one of many Walks of Hope happening this weekend, the team aims to complete a circuit around the greater part of the valley, ascending all classic peaks including Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag, Pike O Stickle, Rossett Pike, Bowfell, Esk Pike, Crinkle Crags top, Great Knot, and PikeO Blisco.

The route is around 18km in length, with 1,200m of ascent.

The team aims to raise enough money for one complete day of research – a total of £2,740 – and add a tile to one of the charity’s Walls of Hope.
