The Griffiths & Armour team take on walking and cycling challenges to fundraise for the NSPCC

As one of our chosen charities, we are proud to support the NSPCC and the amazing work they do to protect children today and prevent abuse tomorrow, to transform society for every childhood.

After the success of the Peak District Challenge in 2019, in which the Griffiths & Armour team raised nearly £4,000 for the NSPCC, we are now well rested enough to do it all over again, this time with the beautiful scenery of the Lake District.

On Saturday 11 June, a team of 21 from Griffiths & Armour will be heading to Kendal to take part in a walk, over distances of either 28km (c. 17 miles) or 49km (c. 30 miles). To give you an idea of how much walking that translates to, the walk in 2019 took around 12 hours to complete and around 66,000 steps. There will be stunning views along the way and at the end, a photo finish, medal and glass of fizz before a well-earned sit down!

Hot on the heels of the walk, on the 3 July, a number of the Griffiths & Armour team will be taking part in the Liverpool to Chester bike ride, over distances of either 50 or 100 miles. Both rides will be gruelling and riders will expect to be in the saddle for around 7 hours whilst cycling some well-known routes around the North West, including through one of the Mersey Tunnels.

The Griffiths & Armour team will be completing both challenges in aid of the NSPCC. If you would like to support the team by way of sponsorship and help spur them on to the finish line, full details can be found on our JustGiving page.
