A KENDAL gym owner will be attempting to 'box jump' the accumulative height of the four highest peaks in the Lake District.

Joe Robinson, owner of CoreWorx Gym on Sandes Avenue, will be attempting to leap on to a 24-inch box a total of 6,270 times.

If he makes every jump, it will add up to a total of 12,539 feet - equivalent to the height of Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw.

Joe's aim is to complete the challenge in 12 hours and will be raising money for local disability charity, Bendrigg Trust.

“Myself and the team at CoreWorx wanted to raise awareness and funds for Bendrigg’s amazing cause," he said. "We have an application pending with Guinness World Records so you never know we might create a new world record!"

Bendrigg Trust, based in Old Hutton, is an outdoor centre and registered charity specialising in supporting people with disabilities, and those facing disadvantage, to have outdoor adventure opportunities.

Providing a wide range of adventure activities such as caving, climbing and canoeing, alongside residential opportunities, Bendrigg Trust promotes independence, encourages inclusion and increases self-esteem.

Fundraising officer for Bendrigg Trust, Sarah Garman said: “This is such an amazing and unique challenge. Walking the four highest peaks would have been tough enough and Joe has gone ten steps further! We’re so grateful to him for raising funds for Bendrigg."

Joe will start jumping at 6am on August 11 in Wainwright's Yard. He is inviting spectators to watch or challenge him to a box jumping duel.

There will also be a selection of gym equipment to try with competitions and prizes for the overall daily winners.

Joe is one of Bendrigg Trust’s '40 Fundraisers' celebrating the charity's 40th anniversary and he hopes to raise £1,000.
