Outdoor lovers are invited to sign up for a walking challenge taking place in the Peak District this summer.

Severn Trent Water’s Mountain Challenge will raise money to help support WaterAid’s work in Ethiopia.

Teams can walk 10, 20 or 30 miles, starting at Hope Valley College before descending back to Edale College for refreshments and a prize-giving ceremony.

The challenge takes place on Saturday, July 12.

Teams are made up of three to six walkers who must raise at least £200.

Leanne Town, Severn Trent Water community and volunteering manager, said: “We’re asking motivated teams to make a great start to 2014 by signing up to take part in our Mountain Challenge.

“Money raised will help people in Ethiopia.”
