Scafell at Night 2021

For the past four years St Mary’s Hospice have offered our supporters the unique opportunity to climb one of our beautiful Lake District mountains, this year we have decided to go BIG! And our challenge to you if you wish to accept, is to climb England’s tallest mountain Scafell Pike standing at 3209ft …… BUT in the dark!

You will be guided by the amazing team that we have worked alongside for several years, in the form of Matt and his team from Lakeland Mountain Guides. You will start your ascent shortly after midnight, reaching the summit with a hope to witness the stunning dawn sunrise and celebrate with a glass of fizz!


We have two routes available, to ensure that we cater for all abilities ensuring the trip is a fantastic experience for all.






* Please note if the dates proposed cannot go ahead due to government restrictions the trip will be re scheduled.

** Minimum Sponsorship for this event is £250pp


If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact our Event Manager Mel on




“ Reaching the top I felt an amazing sense of liberation, it is something I will never forget”


“ The guides were so warm, friendly and knowledgeable” nothing was too much trouble. As an “older” lady they made me feel extremely safe at all time”


“ I have completed all four climbs for St Mary’s, and I have just signed up for Scafell, I would not miss it for the world, it has become a highlight in our family calendar now”


“I joined this trip on my own but thanks to the fantastic communication from St Mary’s prior to the trip I never felt alone once, the climb felt like I was with friends”
