Leo and Caiden

Leo and Caiden are both aged 11. In March this year their life's were turned upside down. When their Grandad ( Andrew Drobnica) passed away.

Andrew spent his last few days in Bassetlaw hospice with Leo's mum ( Andrews Daughter) and Caidens dad ( Andrews Son) by his side. Unfortunately because of Covid restrictions the boys were unable to visit, but would often facetime their Grandad.

Rebecca said "Leo and Caiden want to thank the hospice for the amazing and outstanding care given to their Grandad. So on Saturday 7th August they are putting on their Footie tops on and setting off from Worksop via the Canal to Bassetlaw Hospice, this will take them around 4 hours."

The boys target was £200 but they have already raised an amazing £570.60 including gift aid. 

Thank you so much to both Leo and Caiden, what an amazing challenge, Debbie is looking forward to meeting you both on the other side of your walk. 
Good Luck!

The challenge
After so many months working from home and an injury each, Yumi and Jo needed a challenge to get them moving again. All the usual races and events have been cancelled, but they were inspired by the website that Mark recommended : My Virtual
The objective was to Run / hike / cycle / kayak the distance between Cradley and Strasbourg. With a target of covering the 1007 km within 12 weeks. 
What did they do 
Yumi and Jo both started running again regularly. Christoph took up kayaking. Richard started biking the 9km trip to and from work and sometimes he even comes home for lunch. They also did various bike rides and hikes with the children and friends ; every kilometre counted!
Challange complete 
The did amazingly well and completed the challange covering 01181km in 90 days. 
Well done to each and everyone who took part and thank you for all your support
