A merry band of hikers from SPAR NI dusted off their walking boots to tackle this year’s NSPCC HACK. Sharon Kernohan from Ballymoney, along with over 30 SPAR NI employees, conquered the demanding 20 mile route in the magnificent Mournes on 14 September.
Speaking after the event, SPAR NI Representative Laura Johnston said: “The HACK was a hugely rewarding experience. Our team trained hard in anticipation of the HACK and focused on working together as a team to get each other across the finish line. Having worked hand-in-hand with the NSPCC for many years, we are fully aware of the amazing work the charity does for the protection of vulnerable local children and their families.”
SPAR NI hope to raise £2000 from this year’s HACK, which will help the NSPCC to make significant strides for the protection of children across the region.
Fionnuala Savage, NPSCC community fundraising manager urged people to get involved in the project.”
