Good evening everyone,

I'll start with the statistics for September and October, they are combined as I forgot to do them at the start of last month.

September: 399.11 miles

October: 265.03 miles

Total mileage: 30697.20 miles

Total raised with Gift Aid: £75,417.42

Today was a long hard day, a run from Thornbury to Chippenham, I had to stop for a charge in Tesco Extra at Yate, thanks to them for that.

I actually had a day off on Saturday, other than doing an article for a newsletter, it was strange to say the least. Sunday was a first since this time last year, I collected in the lobby of Tesco Cam, I'd forgotton how tiring it could be, anyway between Quedgeley and Cam £288 was put in the bucket, thank you everyone.

I'm now booked in at Help for Heroes Tedworth House from Saturday, I want to get the scooter down to Tramper to get it serviced, I've worked it hard over the last four and a half years, I was told at the start of this year that I have put it through twenty years use in four years! I wonder how many times the wheels have turned in the 30697 miles...

I'm hoping to do Rememberance Sunday in Tidworth at the new memorial. ;)
