    Hello All,

    I hope you won’t mind me sending this email to you but Gill and three friends have taken up the Oxfam Trailtrekkers Challenge.

    The challenge works like this:

    Form a team of four; raise at least £1500 for Oxfam; then as a reward go to Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales at the end of May and have a walk.

    The catch is that the walk is 100 kilometres (62.2 miles in old money) and contains a total ascent equal to Snowdon plus Ben Nevis AND has to be completed in 30 hours walking through the night! Now you see why I call them crazy especially as they are all of, shall we say, a certain age, with some of them past the mid point of their seventh decade.

    Apart from the walk itself there’s all the training they have been doing on the coast path to get to a point where they can meet the challenge so this is a really tough thing.

    They have raised about £1000 so far so there’s still a bit to go and if you think their effort is worth supporting you can donate at

    Best Wishes
