Lake District Challenge for Carlisle Lawyers

Two Burnetts lawyers have completed a punishing 22 peak challenge to raise funds for The Lake District Calvert Trust. 

Two Burnetts lawyers have completed a punishing 22 peak challenge to raise funds for The Lake District Calvert Trust. 

Sara Worsick (pictured left) and Sian Spencer (right) have raised almost £1,500 for the Trust by completing the three day challenge from 12th to 14th June, scaling the four highest mountains in England on a hike of more than 110km. 

Speaking the day after completing the Lake District trial, Sara (23) said, “It was absolutely brilliant – there were some challenging times which really pushed us both physically and mentally, but it has been a fantastic experience.”

She continued, "It was certainly harder than we expected with late nights and early mornings. We were extremely tired. The second and third day involved a lot of scrambling and bouldering. Visibility was really tough so we were grateful we were in the company of more experienced walkers. The Calvert Trust support staff did a great job. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who helped us.”

Sara is a Trainee Solicitor and lives in Calthwaite. Sian (36) is an Associate Solicitor and lives in Cockermouth. 

The women hope to raise £2,000 with contributions still to follow from Plumpton and Fairfield Schools. Donations can be made at:   https://www.justgiving.com/SianSara-22-Peaks/
