The Master Cutler’s Challenge 2015 is nearly over. The
Celebration evening was last Wednesday. Fundraising is over £110,000 and so
many people have undertaken so many fantastic challenges to raise this money.
There was hardly a dry eye in the house as we heard wonderful performances
from some of Brathay’s young people with the help of Caution Collective.
And I’ve done nothing!
You may remember I was going to run the boundary of the Cutlers’ Company. But I
got a foot injury – which is a drawback if you’re trying to run over 100 miles
in one go.
But after Wednesday I’ve decided I’ve got to do something
and I’ve only got this week. So I’m going to do the run. However, I will have
to do it with rests because of my foot and resulting lack of fitness. So I’ll
start on Wednesday 23rd around 8.00am Fox House and rest every 8
miles or so (convenient café if possible!). I’ll also rest overnight and resume
where I left off. Hopeful to finish on Friday sometime.
I’m doing this to thank everyone who has raised money for
the Challenge. To enjoy watching me suffer you can follow me with live tracking
Do come and stumble along with me for a while if you'd like!
Cake, chocolate, sandwich, cup of tea may well be
appreciated. Don’t be offended if not!
I don’t expect any serious fundraising as I’m not doing what
I originally promised. However, I have resurrected my page – But please wait until I’ve at least got through
the first 20 miles or so. I’d hate to take undeserved sponsorship!
