TV presenter and keen outdoors enthusiast Julia Bradbury is calling on members of the public in and around London to play their part in ending child cruelty by taking part in the first Central London HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids).
The London Loop HACK is a 20-mile sponsored challenge walk in aid of the charity's Child's Voice Appeal. The Child's Voice Appeal will help to expand the NSPCC's vital helpline services â€“ ChildLine the UK's free, confidential 24-hour helpline for children and the NSPCC Helpline for adults concerned about a child.
The scenic route goes through the heart of London, and crosses the Millennium, Blackfriars and Westminster Bridges as well as taking in Hyde Park, Regents Park and Primrose Hill.
The registration fee is only Â£15 per person and the walk is for over 18s only.
Final registration date is 8 July 2010.
The original HACK ran for four years in Yorkshire between 2005 and 2008. In 2009 the HACK went 'national' with five walks. Due to their continued success, this year the NSPCC has increased the number of hikes to eight.
