It was an amazing achievement on the hottest day of the year so far. The London Revolution Cycle Ride took place over two days. The route covered a distance of 190 miles and was an extremely tough challenge, in fact Kern said that it was the hardest thing he had ever done. They did so incredibly well and took it all in their stride, finishing in an excellent time. Our grateful thanks go to them for all they have raised for the Trust.

3 Peaks Challenge
Many congratulations to Jenny Reynolds and her partner Ross and the team for successfully completing their challenge on June 13th.
The challenge that they set themselves was to climb the three highest peaks in the Uk in just 24 hours. It was a gruelling time for them with high winds and torrential rain creating treacherous conditions underfoot. We are very proud of them for making it in the time despite all the problems and being held up in heavy traffic driving from Scafell to Snowdon. Many thanks also to the donator of the Landrover complete with a tank full of fuel. Jenny and Ross have raised with Gift Aid a total of £1273.26 to date for which we are very grateful. Jenny can still be sponsored on BTMydonate up to the 13th September. Well done to you both.
