The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is calling on members of the public in Buckinghamshire to play their part in ending child cruelty by taking part in the charity's HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) on the edge of the Cotswolds on Sunday 5 September.
This is the first time that the Cotswolds HACK - is a 25-mile sponsored challenge walk in aid of the charity's Child's Voice Appeal - will have been staged, and funds raised will help to expand the NSPCC's vital helpline services - ChildLine the UK's free, confidential 24-hour helpline for children and the NSPCC Helpline for adults concerned about a child.
The scenic circular route will start and finish in Cornbury Park and takes walkers through the natural beauty of the Cotswolds, including the historic estate at Blenheim, the remains of the once vast Forest of Wychwood, a Roman Villa and the cooling flow of the River Evenlode.
The registration fee is £15 per person and the walk is for over 18s only. The registration deadline is Monday 23 August. For further details or to register online log on to www.nspcc.org.uk/hack or contact the NSPCC East appeals office on 01908 328060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The original HACK ran for four years in Yorkshire and in 2009 the HACK went ‘national' with five walks. Due to its continued success, this year the NSPCC has increased the number of hikes to eight including the one in Oxfordshire.
