£1,500 raised for Switch Up

Our annual charity walk took place last month, with 13 people taking on the 35-mile Peak District Challenge, and we’re delighted to announce that over £1,500 has been raised for Switch Up Notts.

Walkers from local businesses including CPW and BSP took on the trek through Hope Valley, Monk’s Dale, Millers Dale and the stunning Frogratt Edge, finishing in Baslow, Derbyshire, with the fastest of the group finishing in less than 12 hours.

This year, our chosen charity was local organisation Switch Up, which helps young people realise their full potential and imbues them with the confidence and skills they need to create a brighter future. Its programme delivers outreach services, mentoring, accredited non-formal education and resettlement mentoring for young people serving custodial sentences.
