This year the Montane Lakeland 100 competitors have raised in excess of £42,000.00 for Epic Kidz. The Lakeland 100 event has a huge and dedicated team of hard working volunteers and this year we have asked all of the checkpoint owners and checkpoint managers from the event to nominate a group or charity to receive an Epic Kidz donation. Over the coming few months we will be blogging about all the donations made to all the good causes nominated by the Lakeland 100 family.
The next donation was nominated by Iain Johnston (Kentmere Checkpoint Owner). He very kindly requested that his donation be sent to St Cuthbert’s Church Roof Appeal.
St Cuthberts Church is a Grade II listed building based in Kentmere which dates from at least 1450 with foundations from around 11th Century. The roof restoration is a very significant project because of the age and listed status of the church and the work is painstaking and therefore expensive. The whole project involves the complete removal and replacement of the slates and timber from the roof together with a new membrane and gutters. The whole project should put the building back into a good state for the next 60 years.
