All the staff, and trustees of Gul would like to say a huge thank you to all those who generously donated during the Christmas Challenge, during which we successfully raised £790. which when added together with Gift Aid comes to a staggering £950...!

 

Thank you to all the residents who turned up to the area board meeting, I know some of you were there for the traffic updates but it was nice to give a presentation to a full room. Gul gave an update as to how we are spending our latest grants which was really well received and we as a result received the support of two local businessess and three councillors.

All in all a good days work!

The Marathon is over...

Hi to all my followers!

I am very glad to to say that my Munro Marathon is over (I know I shouldn't say that but wow that was Hard!) over the 3 weeks I completed 20 mountains over 3000ft (only 15 were Munros but that is a classification thing) travelled over 1800 miles and ran into some seriously rough weather. 

In fact the weather was so bad that in the middle of the expedition I had to take poor Ilsa home as she wore her pads smooth and became lame, this meant a 3 day 800 mile trip home which is why I only managed to finish 20 mountains not he 26 I was hoping for.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the two support crews who came with me... you know who you are and to everybody who has followed my blog and given me such amazing support you are wonderful people!
