[C]umbrian based adventure company Treetop Trek Ltd is swapping the treetops for the mountaintops, as it pledges to conquer all 214 Wainwright Walks in 12 months, in aid of Fix the Fells.

To date, the hardy team at Treetop Trek, which has a site at Brockhole, has completed a staggering 77 walks since the turn of the new year, with plans to tackle the remaining 137 well underway. As time goes on and more 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.

Mike Turner, Managing Director of Treetop Trek Ltd, 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.”

Fix the Fells is a local charity which aims to protect and secure the future of the spectacular Lakeland fells from erosion for future generations to enjoy by maintaining and repairing the paths. Its mixed team of volunteers and National Trust rangers work in all weathers caring for and creating sustainable pathways high up into some of England’s most scenic scenery.

Treetop Trek Ltd runs both Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets. Launched in June 2012 at Windermere, it 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 is currently taking shape at Heaton Park in Manchester, set to launch this Summer.
