Injury worries!

Injury worries!

On a training walk into work Clive sprained his left ankle at Newmills Ford. Now tightly bandaged and advised to rest hopefully shouldn't be a problem for our walk in just 7 weeks time!

Please keep encouraging others to sponser us; we're doing well but to steal a quote from a well-kown Supermarket - "Every little helps!"
