As always, a splendid time is guaranteed for all.JENNY: AN UPDATE
In blogposting 214 I told you about my meeting with the redoubtable Jenny, up in the clouds at Hartside Top. I also asked her to get in touch with the names of the people in the photo I used, and tell me the name of the charity that was involved in the escapade.
Well, she has got in touch (thankyou Jenny) - which is why I’ve used the photo again, but this time with a caption.
There were, apparently, more photos and details in the Evening Chronicle of 26 August but I’ve searched their website until my mouse-fingers ached and can find no trace. If you have better luck, get in touch.
The charity that Chris ran for is called Papyrus; it’s active in trying to investigate and prevent suicide, especially amongst young people. It’s a worryingly worthy cause and you can donate at www.justgiving.com/c2crun
I think I may have jumped the gun by saying that Chris was Jenny’s future son-in-law. Er...my apologies.A WORD TO THE WISE
