Join us on our latest TUCO Challenge - Trek22Written by Anjali Dattani
TUCO are delighted to announce details about this year's Challenge - Trek22.
On Saturday 22 June, we will be embarking upon a 22-mile trek around the beautiful Ullswater valley, taking in the breathtaking scenery past waterfalls, woods and castles and the legendary Glencoyne Wood, where William Wordsworth penned his most famous poem ‘Daffodils’ - and we'd love you to join us!
The whole route is approximately 22 miles but there is the option to just walk parts of it. We will set off at the North East corner of the lake at Pooley Bridge, heading in anti-clockwise direction towards Aira Force heading through Glenridding, Patterdale and Howton, then the final stretch back to Pooley Bridge for a celebratory dinner.
Regular comfort/refreshment stops will be taken and participants are invited to bring along partners, children, friends, family members and pets to add to the relaxed atmosphere. Download the route map.
As with previous years, Trek22 will be raising money for the Chair's Charity - Mary's Meals - supporting those suffering the effects of extreme poverty by providing every child with one daily meal in their place of education. To date we have raised over £50,000 for this very worthy cause and given that just £13.90 feeds a child for a whole year, that is over three and a half thousand schoolchildren in Malawi who have benefitted from the generosity of our wonderful TUCO members and suppliers.
