Win a weekend at the fabulous Alpkit Big Shakeout festival at the wonderful accessible Woodlands Lodge.

Enter our Big Shakeout competition!

Last year we teamed up with Accessible Derbyshire and Thornbridge Outdoors to bring you a fantastic competition.

This year we are offering the same again! It can sometimes be incredibly difficult for some to access the outdoors and a lot of what we do through the Alpkit Foundation is to help towards overcoming obstacles. As all profits of the Big Shakeout go towards the Alpkit Foundation then it's great to be able to offer those who would ordinarly struggle to enjoy a weekend like this the chance to come along and join in. 

You can win a weekend at the Big Shakeout festival, staying at the wonderful Woodlands Lodge.  

Woodlands' has been designed to cater for groups which include those with additional needs in an idyllic setting at Thornbridge Outdoors, Derbyshire; with accommodation for up to 8 people and with fantastic rural views towards mature woodland.

This brand new, accessible lodge at Thornbridge Outdoors is close to the villages of Great Longstone and Ashford-in-the-Water and has everything you need to enjoy a fabulous weekend to remember.

The Prize must be taken during the festival on 28th-30thSeptember 2018

Whether you want to enjoy the range of activities on offer or simply sit back and enjoy some great music and delicious food, there's sure to be something here for everyone.

To enter, all you need to do is:

1. Take a photograph or video of yourself or you, your friends and family enjoying your favourite accessible place or activity in the U.K. Remember to tell us where it was taken or filmed.

2. In 50 words or less, tell us why you would like to win this prize.
