[C]umbrian Cottages has partnered with local Coniston children’s author, Fay Lakin, to organise a charity dog walk in Grizedale Forest on Sunday 1st April.
Helping to raise funds for the Coniston Mountain Rescue, those looking to join the 2-mile trail and enjoy outstanding views across the fells are invited to meet at Moor Top car park at 10am for a 10.15am start.
Colin Eccles, Business Development Manager for Ambleside, Coniston and the Central Lakes at Cumbrian Cottages said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Fay to organise this fantastic dog walk in aid of Coniston Mountain Rescue. The team is a voluntary organisation that relies solely on the generosity of the public, so we are extremely pleased to be able to support them in this way.
“Whether you have a furry friend or not, make sure you come along and join in the fun. What better way to spend an Easter Sunday and enjoy quality time with family and friends than some fresh air and amazing views of the lakes and mountains.”
The author released her first hardback book entitled Wilson & Fay Sail the Wayfarer last year. The book, aimed at parents to read to three to five-year-olds, older children and even grown-ups, chronicles Fay and her Springer Spaniel, Wilson, embarking on a sailing adventure on Coniston Water where Ms Lakin lives.
Ms Lakin adds: “I am delighted to be arranging the dog walk taking place on Easter Sunday and raising valuable funds for Coniston Mountain Rescue. Colin and the wider team have supported me from the very start by placing my children’s book in dog and family friendly properties, so it is great to be working with them again.”
All participants are invited to enter a competition to win a Discovery Pass, giving them access to both Grizedale and Whinlatter Forest. The Grizedale Café is also offering 20% off all purchases to visitors during the event.
