NSPCC Peak District Challenge
Griffiths & Armour trek for 12 hours over 54km to raise nearly £4000 for NSPCC in Peak District walk.
Volunteers from Griffiths & Armour’s Liverpool HQ took up the tough challenge of a 54km trek around the Peak District to raise funds for one of our chosen charity partners, the NSPCC.
The Peak District trek, which took place in July, involved 8 dedicated members of staff who completed the route in just over 12 hours.
Our initial fundraising goal was £3,160, with all funds raised going towards supporting children and young people around the UK. However, we are delighted to confirm we have so far raised over £3,900 with donations still being made!

Simon Keenan, who is a Partner at Griffiths & Armour, took part in the walk alongside 7 other colleagues said “We have a special place in our hearts for the NSPCC, and wanted to do something challenging to support the excellent work their counsellors and volunteers carry out every day. The discomfort we experienced during parts of 54km of steep climbs and descents throughout the Peak District in the heat were nothing compared to what some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK are experiencing every day, both physically and emotionally. If the money we raised from our walk can help make life better for them, then it’s all been worthwhile”.
Tess O’Callaghan, senior corporate partnerships manager for the NSPCC, said:
“We’d like to thank everyone from Griffiths & Armour for their amazing donation to the NSPCC. I know everyone at the Hargreaves Centre in Liverpool is hugely grateful for the G&A team’s superb efforts, our staff and volunteers will be able to continue their vital work in ensuring children and young people around the UK will be able to access the advice, support and counselling they desperately need.”
Simon and the team would like to thank everyone who has kindly donated so far and we are now looking to push over the amazing milestone of £4000! We’re not far away and it is not too late to make a donation, so if you would like to, please visit our Just Giving page.
