Special Event

Great Whernside Wander

Saturday 24th September 2022

Our Patron, Bhasker Patel has joined up with Emmerdale friends Chris Chittell, Nick Miles, Darcy Grey, Isobel Hodgins, Ash Palmisciano and Liam Fox, and former Emmerdale actor Anthony Quinlan and Hollyoaks’ Nikki Sanderson to raise awareness for our Charity. You can join them on the walk and help them raise funds. We will provide a coach from Grimsby which will call at Scunthorpe – places are limited. Those outside of these areas must make their own way there. You can sign up by emailing joanne@sunflowers.org.uk – a £25 non refundable entry fee is requested, and the commitment to raise £100 per person.

About the walk:

Starting from the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct this route takes you to the highest point in Yorkshire Whernside. On a clear day there are great views out to the Howgills, the Lake District and Morecambe Bay.

The ascent of Whernside involves a long steady climb and a lovely high-level ridge. The descent is steeper with a final flat section through the fields to finish underneath the spectacular Ribblehead viaduct.

The walk is intended to be at a slow pace, with the group staying together, for safety, at all times.

Distance: 12.5km (7.5 miles)

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A RESTRICTED, PRIVATE EVENT AND ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE REGISTERED IN ADVANCE MAY JOIN THE GROUP. UNDER 18’S WILL BE CONSIDERED, HOWEVER, MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT AT ALL TIMES, WHO TAKES FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM, MUST BE PHYSICALLY FIT AND IMPORTANTLY, USED TO WALKING OVER DEMANDING TERRAIN.
