Buxton’s Sharon Holloway is encouraging other local people to take part in this year’s NSPCC hiking challenge, the Buxton High Peak HACK.

The 24-mile HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) is taking place on Saturday, September 1.

Thirty-four-year old Sharon said: “After living in Buxton for the last six years I have come to realise that we do not always take in and appreciate the natural beauty around us.

“The HACK is a really good way of seeing the countryside, meeting lots of people who are raising money for the NSPCC, and learning new walking routes that you can enjoy again and again with friends and family.”

Sharon said: “We are very lucky living in such as community orientated place such as Buxton. I have three children and feel they are growing up in an environment where they can come and go freely in relative safety. But you hear far too often of many situations where the local and home environments for children are not as carefree, safe or happy. Taking part in the HACK gives me and many others the chance to help those children who are less fortunate.”

The HACK is open to people aged 18 years and over. The registration fee is £20 and all money raised through sponsorship will go towards helping the NSPCC to run its services in Derbyshire and across the UK.

For further details and online registrations, please visit www.nspcc.org.uk/buxtonhack or contact the Buxton HACK team on 0113 2182728 or email northcanuhackit@nspcc.org.uk. The closing date for registrations is August 17.
