It is not possible to donate money to walkers online until they have been accepted as part of a team. The use of our online system minimises the handling of cash, saves us a lot of administration effort, and reduces the chances of disputes about payments being “lost in the post” etc. We would strongly prefer that you collect donations online whenever possible. However, if you are unable to use the online system, we have again made the traditional paper form and continuation sheet available for you to print.
Everyone who is registered on the Keswick 2 Barrow website will have received an email recently asking them to reset their password. This is a legitimate email. We have been advised that due to a hack of our old website approximately 4 years ago, people's passwords may have been stolen at that time. We have recently had reports of them being used in phishing emails. Unfortunately, some of our members have reused old passwords when registering on the new website, which is never advisable, particularly in this case.
We therefore ask everyone registered on the website to reset their password to something new. We would also recommend that if you use this password elsewhere you change it as well. We would like to assure everyone that the new (current) website is secure, and there is no evidence of hacking. Also, please note that we have never stored any personal financial information such as bank card details on the website, as all payments are processed by a secure third party, and always have been. If you have any queries, please email them to email@example.com.

Watch out for more info on next year's walk which will be held on the 11 th May 2019.
