After 13 weeks of lockdown life, how much do you fancy lacing up your walking boots, getting out in the open and taking on a challenge with a difference?
Well, we’ve got just the thing for you in the form of our new charity fundraising campaign, with Metro.co.uk Lifeline who are supporting The Hygiene Bank to raise vital funds.
Together with Metro.co.uk Lifeline, we’ve organised a UK-based sponsored 26-mile hike which will not only offer the opportunity to really push yourself, but also take crucial steps in supporting people affected by poverty along the way.
Taking place on Saturday September 19 to tie in with National Hygiene Week (14-20 September) and starting in north London, our specially-created route explores 10 of the city’s hidden ‘Peaks’ and covers a variety of terrain from footpaths to forest.
In fact, this completely unique challenge also promises to take our team of trekkers through beautiful woodland, thriving nature reserves and quieter spaces of London that they never knew existed.
If that wasn’t enough, we’ve already recruited some well-known faces to join us, including our own charity ambassadors Meg Matthews and Kat Farmer, who will be joined by MP Dawn Butler and Charlie Webster, with more to be confirmed nearer the date.
Of course, social distancing is utmost on our minds, which is why we have limited places on our trek and have just 100 spaces available.
All we expect from our trekkers in return for all this excitement is to raise a minimum of £250.
We want to make sure everyone living in hygiene poverty in the UK has access to the basics and we need your help to make this happen. Sponsorship funds from this charity fundraising campaign will make a huge difference to those living in hygiene poverty.
We couldn’t do what we do without your support. So, if this sounds right up your street, please head to Metro.co.uk Lifeline to register your interest by 6th July.
