The beautiful St Patrick’s Church was built in 1853. As with all historic buildings, it needs constant love, attention and money to maintain it. To find out more about the history of the Church please click here. This year there is a large appeal underway to restore the magnificent church organ.
Patterdale School is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School catering for children from four to eleven years of age. The School was first built in 1873 and relies on the generous support of well wishers to provide a number of extra activities and facilities for the children.

The Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team, one of the busiest voluntary search and rescue teams in England. It is an entirely voluntary organisation supported by donations. Whilst the Boundary Walk does not explicitly raise funds for the team, we would like to formally thank them for their work throughout the year, and in supporting the walk. If you would like to make a direct donation, please click here.
The Patterdale Parish Boundary Walk takes place on the first Saturday in July every year. This annual event is a lot of fun (and a little painful) for those taking part and raises much needed funds for St Patrick’s Church in Patterdale and the Patterdale Church of England Primary School.
There are 3 separate walks covering from 7 to 30 miles to encourage more people to take part. If you’d like to join one of these walks (or runs!) please contact us. Please note you must register an interest before the end of June 2017 to take part. Alternatively if you can’t participate but would like to sponsor one of the teams, please click on one of the links below.
Participants will be sent a paper sponsorship form when they register an interest. In addition this year we are also encouraging people to sponsor online via the btdonate website (it’s free unlike justgiving!). Please click this link to visit the main Patterdale PCC Fundraising page.
Alternatively why not sponsor some of the existing team participating in this years walk:
