Walkers hike up Castle Hill for YCC

On Sunday 2nd July, a group of walkers gave up their morning to take on a 2.5 mile hike to Castle Hill (and back again!) to raise funds for Yorkshire Children’s Centre.

Despite the mixed weather conditions of sun, rain and wind along the way, that didn’t stop the 16 walkers from coming together, and smiling whilst taking on the mini peak for Fresh Futures. 

Amongst the group of walkers, included the youngest participant, four-year-old Archie, who wanted to walk with his Mum and Grandma. Archie managed to walk the entire way, even up the big hills! Well done Archie!

As the walkers reached the top of a very windy Castle Hill, they took a few minutes to have a rest and enjoy refreshments before starting the descent back to Brian Jackson House.  

One of the walkers said: “During the trip, we witnessed breathtaking scenery and shared incredible moments together.”

So far, the event has raised an amazing £600! Including super-fundraisers Laura Cumiskey, and her children, James and Emily-Mae who have raised £200!

Fresh Futures would like to say a HUGE thank you to every single person who took part in the event, and for everyone who donated towards the event. It’s because of you that we can continue making a difference to the lives of local children, young people and their families.

Fresh Futures would also like to say thank you to Barr Soft Drinks and Tesco’s in Huddersfield who kindly donated the refreshments for Fresh Futures walkers, and kept them hydrated and energised throughout the walk.
