"Today has been a nice short day after our long, hard day yesterday up Scafell Pike. We started in the morning at Ambleside and walked alongside Lake Windermere which was very beautiful and scenic.
As usual, we’ve had some great support along the way, lots of gracious donations in the bucket along the route right up until we finished in Newby Bridge.
Then this evening we did a Q&A at Sedbergh School which was really good! The students asked some brilliant questions and it was nice to share our stories with them.
So overall it’s been a very good day and everything is still going really well.
