Fundraiser Cameron Stewart put his best foot forward to complete a 50-mile non-stop walk raising money for Papyrus, the UK charity for the prevention of young suicide.
Cameron, of Penrith, began his latest challenge setting off from the town monument at 6am last Sunday, heading down to Lowther Park, on to Askham and alongside Ullswater to Glenridding, before taking on the gruelling Kirkstone Pass on the track to Red Screes and descending to Troutbeck and on to Windermere.
At Windermere he collected a bottle of water from the lake before doing an about-turn and returning back along the same route into Penrith.
Cameron was inspired to do the walk by Andy Airey, from Morland, who lost his daughter, Sophie, to suicide in 2018, and was joined by Andy for a leg of the walk.
Cameron said: “I am proud to say I completed my walk which raised money for the fantastic cause of Papyrus. It was a tough challenge and going through the night is an experience of endurance.
“I walked the 50 miles over 32 hours non-stop and through the night from Penrith to Windermere and back. I found 2am was the tough time when you need a boost of energy — thankfully I had lots of snacks and people along the route supporting with snacks. Also Andy Airey was a big support, as he walked through the night with me.
“It was a challenge I enjoyed, as it was a great experience and raised important awareness for such a vital cause.
“I’m proud to say I’ve raised £1,200 which is much appreciated and I didn’t expect that. I want to send thanks to everyone who donated and supported me on the walk. The tracker I had on was also appreciated to follow how I was getting on.”
Marking the end of Cameron’s walk he poured water from Windermere into plants at Penrith monument.
