Step up to the Plate is a brand new challenge in which supporters of this incredibly important charity will walk the 20 mile Ullswater Way. The route starting at Pooley Bridge heads anti-clockwise passing over the famous Wainwright Gowbarrow and onto the spectacular waterfalls at Aira Force before a pit stop in Glenridding. The northward return leg passes Howtown and Cockpit before returning to Pooley Bridge. A shorter 10 mile walk to Glenridding is also available with return transport provided.

Jez Marvin, director at Unwin Jones Partnership, said: “We are very proud to sponsor Step up to the Plate. As a business we are committed to supporting causes that directly benefit members of the local community which include our friends, families, employees and clients. Hospice at Home provide an incredibly important service to those with palliative and end of life care needs and so it’s our pleasure to sponsor this fantastic event to help raise funds and awareness for such a vital cause. The team is looking forward to joining Hospice at Home for this special challenge and wish the best of luck to all those who take part.”

Julie Blundell, Head of Income Generation and Marketing for Hospice at Home, said: “Step up to the Plate is a brand new Hospice at Home challenge for 2019. We wanted to celebrate all things Cumbrian and couldn’t think of a better place than Ullswater, which is situated in the heart of our clinical services delivery area. We encourage families, friends and work colleagues with or without their dogs to get involved; you can be assured your commitment and generosity will help make a difference to future local patients, families and carers.”

The marshalled event is supported by a range of local eateries with samples of Cumbrian delicacies being offered along the route and a hearty meal at the finish. The event is dog friendly.

Come and say hello.
