My name is Joshua Smith and I'm going to do a 100 mile walk around the Peak District from 10th August 2019. I will be doing this with friends and it will involve some camping along the way, as we make journey around the National Park.
I'm walking to raise money for the charity Blue Box Belper (http://www.blueboxbelper.co.uk/), who are raising funds to build a new Community Centre on the Parks Estate in Belper.
I'm passionate about supporting this project having spent part of my life living in the estate. I see this as a great project for the community, as the new Blue Box building will be a place for social groups and a space for people to go.
Blue Box Belper aims to help the residents of the Parks Estate in Belper
improve the quality of their own lives. We do this through providing
and supporting a range of local activities including: groups for older
residents, youth club sessions, sports sessions, a craft group and
regular community events. We are also seeking to build a new Blue Box
Community Facility, which will become a hub for the local community.
