Sign up to climb England’s highest mountain… at night


Dig out your walking boots and grab that head torch, as this year Metro.co.uk is offering you the opportunity to take part in a lifechanging adventure.

For our 2022 Lifeline campaign in support of the charity PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Person Suicide, we’ve organised a not-to-be-missed fundraising challenge that involves climbing England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, at night. 

Setting off just before midnight, our trekkers will scale an impressive 985 metres to reach the summit in the early hours, then begin to make their descent as the sun starts to rise over the breathtaking Lake District landscape. 

Once finished, our weary but proud adventurers will be treated to a celebratory breakfast to mark their amazing achievement.

It will be tough, it will be emotional and we have no doubt there will be tears.

However, it will also be a night to remember forever, as every step taken will be a step towards helping a young person’s life.

In fact, the whole idea of starting the climb at night and finishing at sunrise, is to reflect the vital work PAPYRUS does in helping families and young people find light at the darkest times of their life.

Taking place on the night of Saturday 2 July 2022, participants will just need to pay a registration fee of £39 and then raise a minimum of £325 for PAPYRUS, which the charity will use to continue saving more young lives and helping make our communities suicide-safe.
