The Lake District Foundation is hosting an incredible ‘money-can’t-buy’ auction to raise funds for the reinstatement of the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path.


The auction will be held on Friday 8 June at one of the finest hotels in Cumbria, the luxurious Lodore Falls Hotel on the shores of Derwentwater in Borrowdale. The evening will offer the opportunity to bid for exclusive ‘money-can’t-buy’ prizes and experiences. Guests will enjoy a scrumptious four-course meal in the company of a number of national outdoor legends, whilst raising funds for a path with local and national interest.


The auction is set to be an incredibly prestigious event, especially with support from one of the oldest auction houses in the region, PFK Auctioneers who will be running the bidding on the night.
Michael Roberts, Manager of PFK Auctioneers said “We have a long history of hosting successful auctions and with over 140 years’ experience we know the auction planned for the Lake District Foundation will be exceptional. We are confident the lots on offer will be of interest to all walks of life and are excited to be part of the evening to raise funds for a much loved and well used Lake District path”.


The prizes on offer will provide unique experiences and magical moments you never thought possible, to be shared with family and friends as surprises, gifts and treats. The most important part of the event is that the funds raised all go support the fundraising campaign for the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path.


Caroline Hoppé, Campaign and Event Manager from the Lake District Foundation said the fundraising starts before you even get to the auction, “We are delighted to share that when you buy your ticket for the evening it includes a £20 donation towards the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path. We’d like to thank you in advance for your support. The auction prizes will be revealed soon, but in the meantime we encourage you to buy your ticket now so you don’t miss out on this fabulous evening to come.”


Tickets are £50 per person or you can take a table of 12 and can be purchased at https://k2tcharityauction.eventbrite.com.

If you would like to offer a prize or have any questions contact Caroline Hoppé, Campaign and Event Manager from the Lake District Foundation via caroline.hoppe@lakedistrictfoundation.org or call 01539 822622.


The funds raised will go towards reconnecting the Keswick to Threlkeld railway path
