50 Wainwrights in support of ’50 Faces for Hospice’September 28th 2020
Team Cartmells are always up for a challenge so, when Hospice at Home launched their ’50 Faces’ fundraiser, our West Cumbria girls signed up and donned their thinking hats. After a lot of thought, suggestions and zoom meetings, it was decided that they would complete 50 Wainwrights between 1st July 2020 and 1st January 2021. Whether this be hiking, running or, over the winter months, something a little more adventurous, the aim is to reach the summit of 50 of these stunning fells.
Hospice at Home West Cumbria is such a fantastic charity to support and, being in West Cumbria, is very close to our hearts. The team tackling this challenge are:
Claire Wilson – Associate Solicitor specialising in Wills, Probate, Trusts and Inheritance Tax. Claire works between our Rosehill and West Cumbria offices.
Laura Clarke – Private Client Executive specialising in Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate and Inheritance Tax. Laura works from our West Cumbria office.
Lauren Hanley – Secretary based in our West Cumbria office.
Gemma Rudd – Secretary based in our West Cumbria office.
Laura will be providing regular updates on which Wainwrights the team have completed, along with some photos of the beautiful scenery along the way. “With all of us working five days a week, we’re saying goodbye to any weekend lie-ins for the next few months in favour of getting outside and enjoying the rugged mountain fells of the Lake District. We are so lucky to have this national park on our doorstep and this challenge will give us the chance to explore and create many memories”.
“Our motivation for completing this challenge couldn’t be greater. The amazing team at Hospice at Home play such an important role within our community, not only for the people that they provide such crucial care to, but also their families and loved ones during the most difficult times. We will certainly be proud to continue to support them and this will no doubt give us a boost to reach those summits!” continues Laura.
Laura has started the team off, having completed 12 Wainwrights so far – Ullock Pike, Long Side, Carl Side, Blencathra, Carrock Fell, High Pike, Knott, Great Calva, Steel Fell, Calf Crag, Gibson Knott and Helm Crag.
