Hampsthwaite School News: Rachel Binns alerted me to a proposed fundraising event being undertaken by six local mums, Nicola Hudson, Sarah Stoner, Eli Willis, Geri Chan, Rebecca Smithson and Rachel herself. She also kindly emailed to let me know how the Hampsthwaite Six got on at Braham Park on October 21. The challenge involved a 12km run which included wading through bogs, splashing through streams whilst being harried by army instructors, crawling under nets, through an ice bath and negotiating a water slide. The group time was a very creditable One hour 45 minutes. Monies raised will go to Hampsthwaite School PTA and the breast cancer campaign. It is not too late to donate so monies can be forwarded to Rachel.
