NSPCC calls on people to take on a challenge with a difference 

THE NSPCC is looking for people in Southport to take part in a challenge with a difference; and help raise vital funds for children and young people.

'Chasing the Sun'
involves a bike, hike and canoe in the stunning surroundings of the Lake District, all between sunrise and sunset on 26 April 2014.

The challenge starts at the crack of dawn and will include off-road mountain biking around the famous lake of Derwentwater (approx 25 miles), a trek up and back down Haystacks (approx 6 miles) and a 2 to 3 mile canoe on Derwentwater - all before sunset.

Janette Drew, NSPCC community fundraising manager for Southport said:- "This is an exciting event in some of the most stunning surroundings in the UK. It's quite different from other fundraising activities as it offers a chance to participate in a variety of activities which I hope will appeal to a range of people. Hiking, canoeing and cycling are some of the best ways to explore the Lake District too!  I would urge anyone who fancies a challenge with a difference to sign up to take part so that we can continue to raise vital funds for our local services which offer a lifeline to children and young people in Southport and beyond."

This event is designed for teams of 2, but individual registrations are also being accepted,.  To enter participants need to commit to the following:-

Registration fee:- £39 per person
Minimum sponsorship:- £300 per person*

You can also visit us on Facebook. To register now, simply sign up online through Discover Adventure

* 80% of target fundraising needs to be raised before the event takes place.
