Ullswater holds a special place in the heart of everyone associated with YMCA North Tyneside, being the water that our Patterdale Estate is connected to. The Estate was bequeathed to us in 1850 by North Shields philanthropist Roland Lishman who was a long standing member of the YMCA. By taking part in Ullswater Challenge you have the opportunity to continue the good will of Roland Lishman through a 20 mile trek around the perimeter of the water that ties the beauty of the Lake District to our own community in North Shields.
Your fundraising efforts will go directly towards our ‘Opportunities for All’ bursary that provides disadvantaged young people with the opportunity to belong, contribute and thrive through access to education and enrichment opportunities. We have put a fundraising goal of £100 for this challenge but feel free to exceed this! Remember, any sponsorship, big or small, can make a huge impact on the lives of young people.
