Story

Quarry Bank is an important place for my family. We live on site and my husband is the Lead Ranger. It is also an incredibly important and interesting place for the nation. I am doing the Trans Pennine Challenge in order to support this unique National Trust property and to raise awareness of their current fundraising appeal. I am also completing this challenge in order to help with some personal issues. I am the mother of a beautiful two year old but unfortunately I have been dealing with some health issues over the last year or so. This challenge is a spring board back to health! 

The Trans Pennine Challenge is a 60 mile run/walk from Manchester to Sheffield, across the Pennines. I will be starting at 0830 on Sat 22 June and will hopefully reach Sheffield within 24hrs! You will be able to follow my progress on twitter @nicnac4789.

Your support of me doing this is vital to its a success. Your donations will go directly to the Quarry Bank Appeal so that the property can be completed as it deserves. This will ensure that its story is told for many years to come and future generations will be able to enjoy and learn from it. Your support is also very important to me personally and will be a huge help in my recovery.
