Students take to the Peak District for charity night hike

Over a hundred people will take part in a 13-mile hike through the Peak District for local Sheffield charities on Thursday 2 November.

The event is run by Sheffield’s Raising and Giving (RAG), which is a committee of students at Sheffield Students’ Union who organise many fundraising events over the academic year.

Last year the committee raised £110,000 from bake sales to bungee jumping.

Each year RAG aims donate 85% of its annual total to local charities in South Yorkshire and the North Derbyshire area.

The half marathon walk will have a half way point at a local farm which will feature a BBQ, live music and a bar for hikers to enjoy.

To take part in this event tickets are £8, which includes BBQ food, a map and a high vision jacket. Participants will also be expected to raise £30 sponsorship money.
