The weather for the last weekend has been quite nice which was good for the various events we had going on around the UK. Up in Scotland we managed a cycle ride for the Friends of the Earth. The route was a stunning loop from Cupar and out to the beautiful East coast above Edinburgh before heading back in to Cupar. It was windy but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day!

We also had 2 abseils taking place. We had our open event off the Machester Park Inn and an abseil from Dukes Court in Woking. Both abseils were quite popular and valuable funds were raised for a number of charities including the MS Society, MENCAP, MAG, Raleigh, the Winnie Mobaso Foundation and the Surrey association for Visual Impairment.

Finally, we ran an open Yorkshire 3 Peaks event for 42 people on Saturday. It was a stunning day which (as always) started early which allowed us to enjoy the best of the weather. It was a fantastic day with 39 of the 42 making it and the majority clocking in inside 12 hours! Well done to everyone and I hope there arent too many aching knees out there today! The charities invovled were the NRAS, St Gemmas Hospice and a group raising money for their local pre School. Well done to all those dare devils who got out and done something exciting over the weekend and raised alot of money for good causes along the way.
