BY WHEELBARROW, canoe and unicycle, a charity relay will make its way over fell and lake next week.
Outdoor clothing company Cotswold Outdoors has embarked on a 3,000-mile, store-to-store relay to raise money for the Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation.
The relay baton and GPS tracker is to arrive at the Ambleside store on Monday (August 11th), having already travelled 1,624 miles from the start point, Covent Garden.

The intrepid Ambleside team will cover their four-mile leg to the Grasmere store by pushing a staff member in a wheelbarrow along rough, hilly tracks over Loughrigg Terrace.
On Wednesday (August 13th) the Grasmere team will bike over Dunmail Raise to Harrop Tarn, then trail-run across to Derwentwater and canoe across the lake, covering the last few miles to the Keswick store by unicycle.
