Fix the Fells contributors Wilkinson Financial Management get wet and dirty with the volunteers

Wilkinson Financial Management got more than they bargained for on a day out with Fix the Fells. Working in the Langdale valley the 6 strong team joined a Fix the Fells volunteer path repair team to work high up on the Lake District mountainside.

After a few weeks of glorious weather the team arrived to traditional Lakeland weather with low fog and heavy rain forecast. Undaunted the teams set off up the fellside to Browney Ghyll path in Oxendale Langdale, to see first-hand the work of Fix the Fells volunteers carrying out essential repairs to the Sickle Ghyll paths.

Richard Wilkinson, Wilkinson Financial Management Practice Manager says “It was a pleasure to be out witnessing the hard work of the volunteers. It was eye opening to see the amount of time, effort and artistry which goes into preventing footpath erosion on the fells.”

Steve Tonkin, Fix the Fells Fundraiser, says, “I’m constantly humbled by our contributors –they work hard to raise money for us and then to go out and get stuck in. It is just amazing”
