Danielle Pole, Export Co-Ordinator at Sleaford, has completed two thirds of the ambitious programme of fund raising events she aimed to complete this year – and has raised over £1,500 for MacMillan Cancer Support in the process.
Her latest escapade was an event known as “Hard as Dales”, which is advertised as a 28 mile hike in the Yorkshire Dales, but felt like a lot further due to the number and severity of the climbs involved:
“Conditions were also very boggy and wet and we took 12 hours to complete the course, which started in the town of Settle and went up to Malham Cove, Fountains Fell. The biggest hill is Pen-y-ghent, which is well over 2,000 feet. It felt like lots of hills, some more hills, and then a few more hills after that!”
Dani (in green tee-shirt) is pictured with her friend Amanda Parsons who also completed the event.
She has another ten fund raising events to go, her programme for the year finishing with the Lincoln Santa Run the week before Christmas.
