This weekend, GO Outdoors on Laira Bridge Road in Plymouth is hosting a fundraising event for the NSPCC.
GO Outdoors staff will be wearing fancy dress and selling homemade cakes. And customers will be able to enjoy face-painting and a bouncy castle.
The event is a celebration of GO Outdoors’ support of the HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) challenge walks taking place across the UK this September. And staff will encourage local walkers to sign up to take part in the Plymouth HACK scheduled for Sunday September 8th.
Store manager Matt Robinson said,
“This is a wonderful cause for GO Outdoors. It combines our great passion a for encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors with raising funds for a very worthwhile cause. We know all about the enthusiasm for walking in the area.
“That’s why we’re hosting this event and urging as many customers old and new to find out more; join the Hack; and have some fun making a difference for the NSPCC!”
The HACKs range from 5 to 20 miles and will take place during September in three locations across the UK – Devon, Northern Ireland and London – making them the perfect event for outdoor enthusiasts and challenge seekers alike.
The entry fee for the HACKs is £10 or £20 depending on the distance, and participants are asked to raise sponsorship, with extensive fundraising support provided by a dedicated NSPCC team.
Funds raised from the HACKs will help the NSPCC to protect vulnerable children through its
projects and services including ChildLine – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people – and its helpline providing advice and support for adults who are worried about a child.
