About us

Cadas was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned individuals and professionals who wanted to provide a service for the people of Cumbria who suffered from the effects of alcohol and drugs. It was registered as a charity in the same year. Over the last 40 years Cadas has grown to its current size with around 15 paid staff and some 20 volunteers, operating from 3 centres across Cumbria. We continue to provide our recovery service to individuals and offer help to families, communities and employers with training and information provision. We believe that our major strengths are our independence, our commitment to people and communities, our inclusive approach and our accessibility. If you are ready for change, we can help to bring it about with you for you, and your family and friends, and for your community.

CADAS Helvellyn Sunrise Trek

Event date: Sunday 18th September

Help raise funds for CADAS - Cumbria Alcohol and Drugs Advisory Service, by taking part in this Charity Challenge Event

Distance: 11km / 6.5mile

Walking Time: 6-7 hours

Difficulty Level: 4 out of 5

Minimum Sponsorship: £100

Watch the sun rise up on this fabulous Trek up England's 2nd highest mountain Helvellyn, 950m. Setting off from Swirls car park, Thirlmere, we head up past Brown Cove Crag to our first peak, Lower Man (925m, 3034ft). A short distance further we come to our target, Helvellyn summit! We get to watch the sun come up over the horizon from Ullswater (subject to weather of course!)

We also get to look down over Swirral Edge and Striding Edge - without having to actually climb them! We then continue along the Helvellyn range towards out final peak, Nethermost Pike, whilst continuing to enjoy the sun rise. From here we head down towards Wythburn, followed by a forest walk back towards the finish at Swirls car park where we have our presentation.
