Take a hike to help fund-raise for NSPCC

A children’s charity is encouraging people to pull on their walking boots for a good cause.

The NSPCC is launching its annual walking challenge, Hike Against Cruelty to Kids (HACK) in partnership with outdoor retailer GO Outdoors, which is taking place in Yorkshire on Saturday, July 6.

The charity is calling on people in Brighouse to take part in one of two walks.

One is 22 miles and starts at the Moorlands Inn, Sowerby Bridge, goes through the countryside in Calderdale including a climb to Stoodley Pike in the Pennines.

The second is seven miles and takes in the moorlands and valleys.

NSPCC community fund raising manager in Yorkshire, Helen Verity, said: “We are delighted to be working with GO Outdoors for the 2013 HACK challenges.

“With the support from their customers and staff, even more walkers can join in the fun, which will hopefully mean we’ll be able to raise even more money for children and families across the region”.

The adult registration fee for the 22-mile route is £20, with registration for children for the family walk being £2.50 and adults £10.

The family friendly walk is recommended for children aged over eight and must be accompanied by an adult.
