A Fleckney man will be taking on a 20-mile hike around the capital on Saturday in a bid to combat child cruelty.
Ashley Robson is taking part in the Hike Against Cruelty to Kids (HACK) challenge in London.
There are two routes available to walkers, both of which pass some of London’s most scenic and famous sites, with Ashley tackling the longer of the two.
The 38-year-old dad said: “I’ve never taken part in the NSPCC’s HACK before but I love walking and thought it would be good to combine the two.
“I have always donated to charity but never taken part in a challenge event like this.
“I think it’s really important to raise money for worthy charities and as a father, I hate the thought of any harm to children so wanted to take part in this year’s NSPCC London HACK and try to do some good.”
Barbara Elsey, the NSPCC community fundraising manager for the East Midlands, said: “The HACK is a fantastic way to see the real London and a valuable opportunity to help the NSPCC.
“Without people like Ashley, we wouldn’t be able to continue helping families through our local projects and national services. I’d like to wish Ashley good luck.”
The NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity specialising in child protection.
“It makes a difference for all children by standing up for their rights, listening to them and helping those in need.
The NSPCC also provides the ChildLine, the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people and a helpline for adults who are worried about a child or want advice.
