spin a around Wainwright Challenge

Spin a Round

A challenge to spin Herdwick Wool on all 214 Wainwright mountains.   I am supporting the Lake District Calvert Trust, who provide challenging outdoor activity breaks for people with disabilities, by taking a light-weight spinning wheel to the summit of all the Wainwright Fells in the Lake District.   The wool will be woven into 2 rugs. 1 will be auctioned in aid of the Lake District Calvert Trust. The 2nd can be won by sharing a photo of me spinning on a hilltop on social media with the #spinherdwick.

If you enjoy seeing me doing extreme spinning you can also make a donation to The Lake District Calvert Trust on: mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/spinaround
