Helvellyn Lawnet Challenge 2010

  • Posted

Over the course of the weekend of 5/6 June 2010 a team of five from Gepp & Sons consisting of Neil Ashford ( Team Leader ) Steven Payne , Danny Carter, Neil McNab & Richard Matthams took part in the annual Lawnet Challenge which this year involved walking / climbing to the top of Helvellyn ( 950 metres 3117 feet ) in the Lake District. The weather was very kind with afternoon temperatures reaching the mid seventies. The team completed the route safely without any mishaps in six hours five minutes. Grateful appreciation to Lawnet, the Youth Hostel Association & Merseyventure.
