Around 300 elderly Cumbrians die every year due to cold weather as they are made to choose between heating and eating. The Big Sleep raises money for the Winter Warmth Appeal – a pot of cash distributed to help older people suffering from rising fuel costs and poor health.

The fundraising challenge took place on Saturday 15th February 2014 beside the Low Wood Bay Hotel in Windermere with over 160 people taking part to raise money for the Winter Warmth Appeal.
