NSPCC’s Mourne’s HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) is just round the corner, and the children’s charity is calling on all walkers from the district to sign up now to take part in the challenge on September 14.

The HACK will be a day out in the Mourne Mountains and a valuable opportunity to support the NSPCC. With 14 and 20 mile routes available, it’s also a great way to start a get fit regime. NSPCC community fundraising manager, Fionnuala Savage said, “We’re still looking for people to join up for the HACK, so are calling for people from Armagh to register to take part in the event to help us raise much needed funds so we can continue to deliver local NSPCC services. There will be checkpoints and marshals en route, with radio contact between all checkpoints and the control centre. The terrain is very varied and suitable footwear and clothing are recommended.”

HACK is open to over 18s. The registration fee is £10 for the 14 mile route and £20 for the 20 mile route.

To sign up, or to volunteer for the event, please contact the Northern Ireland NSPCC fundraising office on 02890 351135 or email
