Sam takes Great Strides for the CF Trust

Well done to 11 year old Sam Haythornthwaite and family who took part in a sponsored walk at Itchen Valley Country Park in Hampshire to raise money for us.

Sam said: "I arrived on a beautiful day at the park with my Mum, Dad, sister and my dog Charlie. After bickering about where we were on the map, we set off to do the 5 kilometres through the country park. The walk took us through various trails past huge totem poles and thick forests. As we were the only family on the walk we were in no rush and eventually finished in 1 hour 40 minutes."

"We were amazed when we found out that altogether we had raised a total of £505 for the CF Trust. I'm very proud of raising this much. It means a lot to me because I have CF and it feels good because I know I've played a small part in helping to find a cure."

Thank you Sam and well done!

Hair today gone tomorrow! (sorry)

A big thank you and well done to Andy Kenny from the West Midlands who cut off all his hair to raise money for us! He's still counting his sponsorship money but it looks as though he's raised around £250 which is great. Well done Andy!
