    Many of us were on holiday when you originally posted... and quite a few will be away now... I'm sure the support will build!

    Off to sort out my donation now

    EDIT

    I will donate, I promise, but JustGiving is throwing up errors Will try again shortly.

    It was a really good week this week, We have featured in the local press, we have recieved over £600 in donations including giftaid in total now and we did a short midweek training session. It saw us Yomp 4 miles through the city in 1hour 20mins at a reasonable steady pace, i was personally carrying a huge 65lbs in my bergan, could certainly feel it in my neck and shoulders come the end !

    We have a much longer route planned for bank holiday monday so no day of rest for us! annother evening midweek training session will be held also.

    Our Facebook group now has over 150 members which is fantastic and support continues to grow

    6 weeks today is day one of the yomp

    This weekend see us undertake our penultimate team training session, we will be doing an overnight training session leaving okehampton on saturday afternoon we will be heading south finishing in postbrige the following morning, in total we will be covering approx 11miles but the terrain is much more challenging on Dartmoors north moor so it will be a stern test, and i get to try out my new sleeping bag

    many thanks for the support so far !
