Anya has now cycled over 900 miles and broken the £1000 raised barrier! Last Saturday we arrived in Scotland - it looked a lot like Bedwyn to be fair! It really seemed like a milestone - this last leg has been a long one, so we celebrated with a wee dram (for Mummy and Daddy) but the girls weren't interested in IrnBru..
On Monday, we had made our way to Dalbeattie and shared a video with Granny's Uncle Ian and Aunt Anne who had donated to our cause! It's lovely how we are still connecting with family even through this crisis!
Anya was on the radio once more (link 1:55 in) and we all feel like we're on the homeward stretch!
We are hoping to reach Glasgow next Monday, when Anya is featuring in one of Daddy's cross functional conference calls to say thank you to all our Glaswegian colleagues who have donated so generously!
If everything goes to plan, we will reach Edinburgh on Friday 24th July, 4 months and 1 day since we started this journey! And there we will leave our cycles for a few weeks whilst the girls go to their Nanny's and Grandad's house and we try and get a summer break in!
At the start of Lockdown Anya, 7, decided that she wanted to virtually visit all her friends and family since she knew she would really miss them! So, as a family, we started to use our daily exercise time to cycle (luckily we have some beautiful surroundings!) and kept a note of how far she got!
