Cumbrians in Costume Walk for Moat Brae

moatbrae, April 9, 2016

Well done to Annie, aged six, from Cumbria for dreaming up the brilliant and imaginative Fancy Dress Sponsored Walk to support Moat Brae and to remember her brother in the enchanted land where Peter Pan began.

Annie’s mum Sarah wrote:

When my daughter Annie, aged 6, first suggested a sponsored walk for Moat Brae to create a special place to remember her brother who sadly lost his life last year, we never expected 92 adults and 52 children (13 of them under 5) to join us on the 5.5 miles over Muncaster Fell in the West Cumbria. We were overwhelmed with how many crazy Cumbrian people dressed up to join us some of them travelling as far as Dundee, Newcastle, Leicestershire, to walk over Muncaster Fell.

A HUGE THANK YOU must also go to the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway who provided transport to our start point and the ladies of the Turntable Cafe for doing a great job in providing refreshments. Thanks also to Muncaster Guest House for making our journey safer.

I think the array of animals, Wallies, pirates, Tinkerbells, Peter Pans, Smees, 118s, crag rats, minions, superheroes, cowboys and whoever else I’ve missed made some Saturday Cumbrian fell walkers smile. In Annie’s words today was “EPIC”

We look forward to welcoming everyone who took part to Moat Brae when we open in 2018.
The pictures are great – looks like you had lots of fun.
