Another Waynwright Day - Dow Crag

31 August 2019

We’re supporting 16 year old Amy Bray as she takes action against climate change and encourages others to do the same.

On 31 August she is launching Another Way, a new charity, with a record-breaking attempt to put the most people on the Wainwright summits at the same time (1pm).

To help her achieve this we are leading four free guided walks. Book in advance to secure a place and get involved to support this fantastic cause.
