Thank you to George Bounds who took part in this event and walked 130 miles across a very wet Wales to help raise money towards the cancer centre.

Sponsored Gymathon

A big thank you to Pearl Evans who took on a 13-hour exercise challenge to raise hundreds of pounds. Pearl, 66, walked, ran and cycled over three days to raise cash towards the cancer treatment centre.

Pearl said: “This is a cause that is close to my heart as I've lost family members and friends to cancer and can only imagine how difficult it must be to travel miles when you feel so unwell.” Pearl, who works at J&K Care Specialists, in New Street, Basingstoke, took on the challenge at Aspects of Fitness, based at Scrapps Hill.
