A Windermere-based adventure challenge business is attempting a mountainous challenge in aid of charity.

Treetop Trek has committed to undertaking the Wainwright challenge of all 214 Wainwright walks in 12 months.

The massive challenge will be undertaken for Fix The Fells, a local charity which aims to protect and secure the future of the Lakeland fells from erosion for future generations to enjoy by maintaining and repairing the paths.

So far this year, the team at Treetop Trek, which has a site at Brockhole, has completed a staggering 77 walks, with plans to tackle the remaining 137 well under way.

Mike Turner, managing director of Treetop Trek, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to see the team here so dedicated to supporting a local charity like Fix the Fells.

“Everyone at Treetop Trek is passionate about Cumbria and it’s brilliant to be able to give something back to nature and have a fantastic time while doing so.”

An increasing number of team members from its three North West sites are becoming involved and dreaming up more inventive ways to take on the challenge, with one even skiing down from one of the peaks.

Treetop Trek has grown to become a multi-award-winning visitor attraction with three sites across the north of England – in Windermere and Ripon and a new site at Heaton Park in Manchester, set to open this Summer.
