The team are looking for sponsorship for the 2017 event with all proceeds raised being donated to the "Together Trust" a local charity based in Cheadle which looks after and rehabilitates children with special needs and children that have been abused or abandoned by their parents or carers.
The Together Trust receives funding for the essential caring of the children from the state, however there is no funding available to give any of the children in their care any day trips or holidays. The team are hoping to raise £1,400 to give children most in need a weekend activity holiday in the Lake District.
Here the children can take part in confidence building events and learn more about the countryside. This may seem expensive, but due to the special requirements of the children, at least five full time carers need to be with them at all times.
