We are very excited to share with you our George Fisher Ambassador Scheme for 2019. We have chosen seven people to join us on our journey through the year to share their stories and experiences in the outdoors.

We have carefully selected people to cover all aspects of outdoor life here in the Lake District, from walking and rambling, climbing and mountaineering, fell running, skiing and winter sports through to photography and storytelling.  

Meet the team representing George Fisher this year. All of our ambassadors bring their own unique voice and will bring to life what we at George Fisher believe in, inspiring and facilitating your adventures into the outdoors.

Jen Grange 


Jen is our George Fisher family ambassador, inspiring families to get outside and have fun! Jen is passionate about connecting people with the outdoors and nature. As a child of the 80’s she spent most of her time climbing trees, getting muddy and only coming in at meal times and when it got dark! Her first memories are of her mum teaching her flower names as they walked the dogs. Jen wants her children to experience the same joys and adventures as she did, to develop strong and healthy habits of mind and body and to love life the same way she does.
