Walkers set to raise £15,000 for NSPCC at Devon HACK
More than 140 local walkers successfully completed this year’s HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) in Dawlish Warren in aid of the NSPCC.
The route started and finished in Dawlish Warren and everyone who took part in the 25 mile challenge managed to complete the route within 12 hours, the first to cross the finish line completed the route in just under seven hours.
Donna Statham, NSPCC fundraising manager for the area said: “We had a fantastic turnout at this year’s HACK, the first of its kind in the area.
“We would like to thank everyone who took part – both walking and volunteering for their hard work and dedication, and for helping to raise much needed funds to help end child cruelty. Once all the sponsorship has been collected, we hope to raise £15,000 from this year’s event.”
The money raised will enable the NSPCC to carry on its work with vulnerable children and young people. This includes supporting children and families through local services as well as providing vital funding to develop its national helplines – ChildLine for young people and the NSPCC Helpline for concerned adults – so that the children’s charity can be there whenever and wherever children need help.
