Taking a hike for children

RACHEL Churchman from Shirley will be taking part in the Cotswolds HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) walking challenge.

RACHEL Churchman from Shirley will be taking part in the Cotswolds HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) walking challenge.

The event, which is both mentally and physically challenging, is being hosted by the NSPCC on Saturday September 24.

Last year HACK raised £21,340, and this year they hope to raise even more by gaining people like Rachel to take part in the hike.

Participants will be given the chance to take part in a 12-mile or 22-mile walk in the footsteps of Winston Churchhill.

Rachel works with families and children as a senior practitioner in social work, and is one of many people hoping to raise funds to help the NSPCC continue its work to protect children from cruelty.

As a social worker, Rachel has seen the benefits of the NSPCC.

As there are an increasing number of children who are in need of help, these are the type of events which will help to improve lives.

By raising money for the NSPCC, services like Childline, will be able to carry on providing their confidential 24-hour helpline for children.

To take part in the Cotswolds HACK there is a registration fee of £10 per person for the 12-mile walk and £20 per person for the 22-mile walk, and participants must be over the age of 18.
