    🎗️ The Charity

    Every young person deserves a safe and happy childhood. The Children's Society operates across the UK, supporting young people facing abuse, exploitation and neglect. They work tirelessly to help young people through their most difficult challenges and campaign for social change to improve the lives of those who need it most.

    ✔️The Plan

    We aim to raise £2000 for The Children’s Society by walking the 192 mile Coast To Coast footpath. It will be a challenging trek, bringing with it the Lake District’s mountains and Yorkshire’s moors and the ever unpredictable British weather. To make the hike even more of a challenge, we plan to complete it in 9 days instead of the usual 16 days. We will be carrying everything we need with us on our backs and wild camping for the duration of the trip.

    When is this happening? 6th August 2022


    Nick Bailey and Max Gearing - two young, crazy, adventure addicts. We have completed over 1000 miles of the Appalachian trail and want to use our experience to give some young children the same fortunate opportunities we have been lucky enough to have by taking on this huge challenge.

    💰 Where your money goes

    Your gift gives a boost to children living in poverty, gives hope to young refugees and migrants, gives relief to children battling mental health, gives respite for young carers, gives reassurance to children at risk of abuse.

    Just £5 can pay for a hot meal, shower and living essentials for a young runaway.

    Whether it’s a little or a lot, give as much as you can and make a huge difference to a young person.

      We are proud to release our film documenting our 192-mile charity hike, where we raised an incredible £2,500 for the Children's Society. Over the course of our journey, we followed in the footsteps of the famous fellwalker and author Alfred Wainwright, trekking through the picturesque Lake District, the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales, and the rugged North York Moors. We are grateful for all the support we received along the way, and we hope you enjoy watching our journey.
