Long Lake Challenge 2015

With the incredible fun that was had last year, the Orphans in Need Team are once again hitting the Great British waters to bring you the ‘Long Lake Challenge 2015’!

This unique challenge will push your endurance levels as you paddle along the 11 mile-long Lake Windermere- one of the most beautiful natural reserves and scenic landscapes the UK has to offer.

You will take in the splendid sights and enjoy a hearty wood-fire pizza lunch, whilst kayaking alongside a great bunch of people- all wanting to make a difference to orphan lives!

Sign up today and take part in what promises to be a day to remember!
