  • About

High Sheriff of Cumbria, Samantha Scott

Sam Scott is fulfilling a long-held ambition to walk the 73 miles of the Cumbria Way, in 8 days, visiting up to 25 charities along the route and raising funds for the High Sheriff’s Fund. 

The walk passes through the centre of the county from Ulverston to Carlisle and will be an opportunity to appreciate both the beauty of our natural environment and several Lake District communities as Sam passes through farms, villages and towns. 

"Communities within this mostly rural environment face a diverse number of challenges and my aim is to raise awareness of the charities who support the needs of the most vulnerable within our communities. I am looking forward to meeting the staff and volunteers of these charities and learning more of what they do," said Sam.

The High Sheriff’s Community Fund is managed by Cumbria Community Foundation and charitable groups can apply for grants. It is also the source of the High Sheriff annual awards. More information can be found here.

Sam continues: "This is the only fundraising I intend to do during my term as Cumbria’s High Sheriff. My target is £10,000 and I would encourage you all to support the charities of Cumbria by donating here. If you happen to see me as I walk, please stop me and say hello! My itinerary will be on the website from early April and you will be able to follow my progress on Facebook and Twitter."
