Charity Events

These usually revolve around squash in the shape of Squashathons, Charity hustles and other club competitions.

Coast to Coast

In 2000 a bunch of members decided to cycle the Coast to Coast for charity. Most already cycled to work so some extra practice nights were added just to 'get in shape'. The start of the Ride is at St Bees which is only about a mile and a half from the club. The ride was successful and raised nearly £3000 for the Palliative Care unit of the West Cumberland Hospital.

 

Reivers Route

In 2002 it was the Reivers Route. The proceeds from this ride gave £3000 to the Special Care Baby Unit at the West Cumberland Hospital, £2800 for Tiny Lives & £1400 for Leukemia Research.

Other Charities

Other organizations that have been supported over the years are Tameside High Dependency Unit, the local Air Ambulance Service, West Cumbria Group RDA, and numerous schools in the area to name but a few.

March for Heroes (Route 30)

A massive thank you to all at Windscale Squash and Fitness Club for their support for our March for Heroes event which took place on Saturday 19th March 2011. The march from Maryport to Thornhill was quite a challenge, however everyone taking part did themselves proud. On the day the weather was fine which made for an enjoyable and memorable experience for us all. The aim was to raise money for Help for Heroes, a charity dedicated to supporting our wounded service men and women, we are well on course to reaching our target sum of £5000.
