A NORDIC walking group has raised more than £300 to help repair and maintain the mountain footpaths of the Lake District.

Nics Nordic Walks, which holds regular classes and sessions across the Lake District, held a Christmas walk and dinner in Grasmere, collecting £310 for Fix the Fells.

The event, which was attended by 35 people, included a walk around the shores of Grasmere, a Nordic SkiFit demo, a Christmas lunch at the village's Greens Cafe and Bistro and a fundraising raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.
