This photo was taken in July. Becky took part in the local Moonlight Colourthon. Over one thousand people took part all raising money for a charity of their own choice.
Becky (one the left) decided to walk for Cancer research. They walkers all set off in the evening and had to be as colourful as possible. Once it was dark they had light wands and glowing bracelets so it was a real sight to see for all the onlookers.
Becky does a fair bit of walking but had only done about seven miles at one hit before. This Colourthon was a thirteen mile walk so it was a challenge for her. She completed it and received her medal at the end where Dean and the boys were waiting to pick her up. We were all so proud of her and she raised quite a bit out of sponsorship. She has received a nice letter from Cancer research thanking her.
We have not had much of a summer, a few days of blistering heat now and again followed by days of heavy rain or dull overcast skies. I am glad Mike only planted a few tubs of flowers this year.
I am into a new author - Gervais Phinn. He has written a series of books about his life as a Schools Inspector in the Yorkshire Dales. They are absolutely hilarious. He has also made a couple of "live" C.D.'s. I can thoroughly recommend him.
Now I am off to have a nice cup of tea and to listen to Radio 4 plus as they run a lot of old radio programmes, thrillers, crime dramas and plays. Hardly anything worth watching on the t.v. these days.
Have a good week everyone.
