Whilst we do not ask for a minimum sponsorship amount for this event, we do encourage you to raise £250 or more to help support our vital work. The entry fee for this challenge covers the costs for services provided by Lakeland Mountain Guides, and so we are reliant on sponsorship from the event to help us continue to provide our services to those who need them across West Cumbria. Every penny raised stays within our local community.
