Thank you to all those who purchased a copy of the 2013 Wainwright Society calendar.
The sum raised for Cumbria Wildlife Trust's "Uplands for Juniper Project" from the Calendar was £10,000 with a further £2,000 raised throughout the year more details of which can be viewed on our Fundraising page.
The 2014 calendar photos have now been selected, the design of the calendar completed and will be at the printers very soon. We hope to have copies available for sale from mid July onwards.
The proceeds from sales of the 2014 Calendar are being used to support a number of projects, which will enhance the Coast to Coast Walk, now in its fortieth year since the publication of Wainwright’s guidebook.
In 2012, the Society secured the agreement of the local authorities to waymark the route. This work has begun and it is hoped that the majority of the way marking will be completed during 2013.
The Society is also providing new information boards at each end of the route. The boards will be designed and financed by the Society, working in partnership with the Parish Councils of St. Bees and Fylingdales.
Any monies remaining after these projects are completed will be donated to the Mountain Rescue Teams that provide emergency aid in the areas through which the route passes.
