I just wanted to thank anyone who sponsored my husband to do the British 3 Peaks Challenge for Dove House Hospice. Him & the rest of his work colleagues from the Hull Daily Mail, didn’t manage to complete it in the 24 hours but did conquer all 3 in 31 hours and 20 minutes, which is still brilliant.
I have heard many stories about the week before, in terms of weather problems and having to give up half way on certain ones, that getting round all 3 of them at all was a feat in itself. There are still a few achy muscles & joints around but I think the sense of achievement is now starting to outweigh the pain.
They have currently raised nearly £3k and could still do with more support if you could spare a few pounds…

Just a little post to ask you one final time to dig deep to sponsor my husband who is attempting to climb the 3 British Peaks in 24 hours next Saturday with some work colleagues from the Hull Daily Mail, including the Editor.
They are raising money for Dove House Hospice and have raised nearly £2,500 so far.
If you could spare a few pounds, then please do, you can sponsor him at their Virgin Giving Page
As we speak my husband is getting ready for his Jane Tomlinson 10K in Hull which he is running for the Dove House Hospice, which is the Hull Daily Mail charity of the year. There is a team from his work doing it so I’m sure there’ll be some competition amongst them to get the quickest time. He has been training on & off for about 2 months, with a few injuries along the way, but I know that he’ll be fine.
- EDITED 10.15am 15.05.2011 – 10K run was completed in 56 minutes
He is, however, also attempting to walk the British 3 Peaks (Ben Nevis, Scarfell Pike & Snowden) in 24 hours in 3 weeks time which he would love your support for. Again they are doing it for the Dove House Hospice, which is a *very* worthy cause. I think he’s mad but admire everything he’s attempting to do.
Please, please, please dig deep & sponser him on their Virgin Money Giving page!!
I want to dedicate today’s blog to my husband, who has just been awarded the Regional Press Awards Designer of the Year award for the 2nd year running. *I* know he’s fab at his job, but its great to see that people in his profession think the same thing too.
I get mad some days because he doesn’t come home until late at night, but admire his passion for his work which I only wish I had at times. His latest work includes The Blitz coverage in the Hull Daily Mail last week, which was awesome, please have a look
Congratulations honey, being a ‘Corporate Bond’ has it’s benefits xx
UPDATED: You can now read The Blitz pages he designed online at the following website
