Climb 850m of Northern Ireland’s highest peak, Slieve Donard, and help raise vital funds for children

We've been working to prevent child abuse for over 100 years, and we know the only way we can keep all our children safe is if we work together.

That’s why we created Childhood Day - a day that brings everyone in Northern Ireland together to protect children. Play your part this year by getting involved in HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) on 28 May 2022.

Boasting views as far as the Isle of Man and Scotland, HACK 2022 is set to be a fantastic, challenging and rewarding day. You can even join us afterwards for a complimentary burger or hotdog at O’Hares Bar & Lounge, Donard Car Park.

Every step helps young people across Northern Ireland - your £100 could pay for us to answer 20 calls to the NSPCC Helpline.
