Hundreds to stumble in Peak District

Have your say

MORE than 350 people have signed up for a fund-raising walk through the Peak District in support of a charity helping vulnerable Sheffield families.

Places are still available for the Stanage Stumble - a 10-mile or 25-mile trek across moorland in aid of Home-Start.

This year’s event begins at 9am on Sunday, May 1, on the Royal wedding Bank Holiday weekend. Both routes take in beautiful views over the edges of the Peak District.

The challenge is to complete the distance in less than 10 hours and raise £3,000 for the charity.

Entrants are charged £8, which includes a certificate, badge and hot meal at the end of the walk, paid for by sponsorship from HSBC Bank.

Home-Start’s event coordinator, Alison Vaughan said, “We are so grateful that once again, profits from the event are being donated to Sheffield’s leading family support charity, Home-Start.

“Families referred to Home-Start are experiencing all kinds of difficulties: lonely and isolated parents, children with disabilities, mums suffering post- natal depression or fleeing domestic abuse and parents with twins or triplets.

“They need our amazing volunteers who reach out a helping hand in these moments with a truly life-changing service.”
