Hello my name is Misha!

I’ve been on the team at Castlerigg Manor as a volunteer since September 2014. I have enjoyed my experience so much that I would like to stay here for another year, and I’ve been given a place on next year’s team.

As many of you may know I’m from Ukraine and to stay in the UK legally I need a visa. Unfortunately I can’t apply for it from here, so I have to go back to Ukraine to get my visa.

To do this I need to raise money to pay for my transport and to cover the visa processing.

Since I am living in the beautiful Lake District, I have decided to climb Scafell Pike; the highest mountain in England to raise some money. I will be doing this on Friday August 7th.

If you would like to sponsor me and help me continue my Castlerigg adventure I would be really grateful. If you would like to make a donation, cheques can be made payable to ‘Castlerigg Manor’, and sent to Misha Koval c/o Castlerigg Manor, Manor Brow, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 4AR.

If you would like to know any additional information, please feel free to contact me via email at misha.koval@castleriggmanor.co.uk.

Thank you very much.

Love Misha
