who organised today's presentation.


Six of the members went on a very wet walk around the Wasdale Circuit in the far Eastern Fells before meeting up with a dozen more members and friends at Kapellan Animal Rescue Centre.

Kapellan was founded by the late Alfred Wainwright from the proceeds of his well loved Guide books of the Lake District.

We meet in the foyer of the Centre - Peter, Steve, James, John and Lorraine.

Mark and one of the staff, Mel, who would show us around the Centre.

John tries out the cat groomer in the day room . . .

They succeed in re-homing all the dogs and cats that come into their care.

The indoor cattery that we had just visited was only opened last week and, hopefully our contribution, will help them continue their work.

Peter presents our cheque to Hayley. The money was raised from the profits from the 'Lost Sheep', the OFC magazine.

We adjourned to the Cross Keys Inn at Tebay for refreshments.

Peter takes a quick look at the new edition of Mark's fellwalking book.

Steve shows Simon and Beth photos from the walk they all enjoyed (apparently !) earlier in the day.
