The week has been the most challenging so far for a number of reasons?
Firstly the final preparations for my mother’s funeral have been ongoing and I have also been suffering from an attack of diverticulitis which has meant I have had a week of being on antibiotics and not feeling that great.
On a positive note my final Cambridge Charity Fund Raisers charity fishing event took place on Wednesday hence the daily steps for Wednesday were down but we managed to donate another £500 to the The Malcolm Whales Foundation so we have donated £1000 to tmwf this year.
The money raised will be used to help fund a fully serviced holiday pod next to Rook Lake at Rookery Waters and will be used for families suffering with cancer.
Thursday also became a day to forget as the CUFC irrigation system failed?
Firstly the electronic control panel failed and had to be replaced and then the following day the pipework inside the reservoir tank burst and had to be replaced which was not a great job on what was the coldest day this autumn so far.
WE took the opportunity to remove the sludge form inside the tank and carry out a full renovation on the system
Walking this week was done mostly in the local villages again around Rampton, Cottenham.
I am very pleased to say that the challenge is now starting to attract media attention and hopefully this will encourage more people to donate moving forward.
Again I must thanks those people who have donated during week 5
Sue & Graham Brown
Jan & Lloyd

Total funds raised as of 4th November 2021 £3550.00
AS ever I am very grateful to everybody who has supported the challenge
