Join a hike against cruelty to children

City charity thanked by Falklands widow

Have your say

WALKERS are urged to take part in a 21-mile hike to raise cash for the fight against cruelty to children.

The NSPCC’s Hampshire HACK – Hike Against Cruelty to Kids – will start at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, north of Horndean, and wind through the South Downs.

Participants will be able to see quaint villages, Roman ruins and pass a few historic pubs along the way.

Funds raised will go towards services provided by the NSPCC in our area.

Mandy Finch, NSPCC fundraising manager for Hampshire, said: ‘The HACK is a great way to keep healthy, start a keep fit campaign or simply to enjoy a fabulous day out with the opportunity to support the work of the NSPCC.

‘It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced walker or if you’re new to the pastime and want to go at your own pace.’

The walk will be held on September 11 and is open to over 18s.

There is a £20 fee per person to register. Visit or call 01293 651840 by August 26.
