10 weeks today (that’s only 70 days you know!)

In 70 days about the time I am writing this we will heading to Gatwick airport on our way to The Gambia.

We have unfortunately had to cancel the Treasure Hunt due on Saturday – probably the wrong time of year as we are in exam season – however our fundraising remains on target but only if we hit the target for the Dog Show and Barn Dance events – still about £4000 to go in Hornchurch but nearly £12,000 raised.

The £8000 grant target for the Hornchurch contingent remains a problem although boosted by a £1000 donation and hopefully most participants in Hornchurch have done their Jack Petchey applications.

I have picked up £1200 worth of vaccinations this morning ready for the participants day on Sunday – this should get us about ready with only a few to sort after this batch.

It’s looking like the weather will be good for the participants day on Sunday and we will be outside for some of the activities – don’t forget your packed lunch please!

Don’t forget the malaria tablets and mosquito nets will be supplied at the July participants weekend – 5th/6th July.

Hopefully see most of you Sunday.
