Windermere mass walk planned for charity
Bookmark and Share
People will be donning their walking boots all summer long to make the most of the decent British weather.

The Lake District will be jam packed with tourists vying to go walking at some of the national park's most renowned beauty spots.

But as the summer weather makes way for autumn, few walking enthusiasts will stop hitting the trails and this September they will even be able to use their favourite pastime to support a charity.

The Jane Tomlinson Walk for All Lake District Walking Festival will take place on September 9th and will help raise money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, a fund that supports various children's cancer charities.

Mike Tomlinson, whose wife lost her battle with the disease in 2007, told the Westmorland Gazette: "Walkers will get food beforehand and will be looked after. We walked a lot in the Lake District as a family so it seems a great thing to do."

For those heading to the Lake District this June, the Olympic torch will be making its way to Windermere - where it will take a boat ride from Keswick to Bowness.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801370487-ADNFCR
