Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge

Geraint was obviously smiling down on the walkers as the weather was near perfect for a marathon 24 mile walk – as shown  in the picture of the courageous band who achieved this.  10 of us completed the walk in the target time of 12 hours – which is amazing.  Thankfully no significant injuries were incurred – although there were probably some stiff muscles the next day!  Thanks are due to the stalwart support team. Anyone who would like to show some support for our efforts the following website has been set up after discussions with Marj (Geraint’s partner) and Macmillan Nurses:
Please see A Challenge to remember Geraint for details of the walk.  A full report will be in the next magazine.


We are always eager to welcome new Members!
