"The walk route was stunning and really well organised, we couldn't believe the amount of people that came to join the walk and cheer everyone on.
"It really is one of the best places to walk in the country and we were really lucky that the weather held out for us too, all in all a spectacular day.
"We'd like to thank everyone who sponsored our team, including family and friends and all of our customers who supported us in this challenge, so we can help raise money to support vital services for children and families across the country".
Alison Armer, NSPCC community fundraising manager, said: "What a great achievement for our local Go Outdoors team who took part and completed the HACK raising several hundred pounds and counting.
"The 22-mile HACK route is a real physical challenge and it shows their dedication to the NSPCC by signing up and taking part in such a great event.
"On behalf of the NSPCC, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part for all their hard work, leading up to and during the walk, it really is a fantastic achievement."
