A strategic alliance of housing strategy officers across N E Derbyshire DC and Bolsover DC will be doing a gruelling 25 mile trek through the Derbyshire Peaks on Saturday 19th July 2014. The team known as the Rambling Roses which is made up of Di Parker, Rebecca Slack, Jo Hayes, Sarah Clow and Karen Perkins will have to complete the challenge in 12 hours.
This will be a challenge to all of us as none of us have walked this sort of distance before and the walk will take in peaks such as Mam Tor, Jacobs Ladder, Winn Hill, Lose Hill, and Kinder Scout – so some sore legs, feet, and limbs the next day. Map reading has already started to prove challenging to us on some of the practice walks, another challenge for some of us to conquer!!
We work closely with Framework as they currently provide supported housing locally in both Bolsover and North East to vulnerable young people under the age of 25 in addition to other great projects helping vulnerable homeless people across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The project is currently facing huge cuts to its service so now is even more important than ever to raise as much money as possible and raise the profile of the important work Framework does. We’ve set ourselves a £500 target so all donations will be really really appreciated.
We will wear Company T Shirts if you sponsor us !
If you would like to support us by donating you can either give through our on line fundraising link https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/ramblingroses
Thanks in anticipation!
