Hang on in there – Spring officially reaches the Northern Hemisphere on 20 March. Summer will soon follow on 21 June. And as the temperatures warm up, it’s the perfect time to plan outdoor pursuits for the year ahead. Of course, Brits and Anglophiles alike should consider the Lake District in Northwest England.

It covers a staggering 2362 square kilometres, and is home to 10 mountains over 2900 feet tall. What’s more, the tallest, Scafell Pike, stands tall at 3210 feet.

This year, Manchester Pride is launching an initiative to trek across these peaks while raising funds for the Manchester Pride Community Fund.

Also, the project also seeks to raise awareness for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOT), which falls on 17 May.

The trek takes place Saturday 13 May – for more information, click here.
