A further update from us.

All targets met - I crawled (kind of) towards my 25 miles today - puffy eyes, runny nose, lots of sneezes, really hate the hay fever but I got there. Gary has reached 27 miles, Michelle has done around 40 miles (and is injured so at least we have managed to live up to the expectations of our team name), Jackie has also exceeded 25 miles, and Sarah has probably exceeded 125 miles by now. We have raised £700 so far, double of what we originally thought we could raise. On behalf of all of us, thank you so much. You are supporting a brilliant cause.

Michelle has been asked by Gary to draw the Library building while blind folded. All I would say is, be ready for some amazing art work :D

Thank you everyone, we have now crossed £600. You lot are absolutely amazing!!

We are hoping we can touch £750 by the end of the challenge. It won't be easy but we know the generosity of our colleagues, family, friends and public has been absolutely amazing. Thank you so so much! 

Here are a few further updates from the group (not as many injuries as we were expecting by this time). 


13.22 miles done with fantastic video logs and a humorous challenge.

Thank you so much to all of you for helping us exceed our target. You are absolutely brilliant. If you can continue to support us, it would be greatly appreciated as we know how much your support means to people who are suffering from mental ill health.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. We have achieved 50% of our initial target and we can't thank you enough for this. You are absolutely amazing!

We all continue to remain engaged in walking or running for this fantastic cause. As the sponsorship crosses 65% target, things will start to become a bit more interesting so watch this space.
