My name is Trevor Wright. I have the great privilege of being one of the ambassadors for the Orangutan Foundation. I have been working hard all year trying to raise money for the charity, it is hard work but it has been worth every minute! On Saturday 6th June 2009 a group of 7 ladies (Stephanie Smith, Angie Jefferson, Alison Seymour, Deborah Jackson, Angie Lawson, Jo Bush and Kat Fahey) walked 13 miles from Ely to Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire, UK.
I would like to thank everyone for all of their fundraising efforts and great costumes they wore on the day.
They walked along the river and everything went well apart from a bull in one of the fields they walked through took a liking to them! Half way through the walk Paul and Nadine Bradley and their six children also joined the walk.
About four and a half hours later we all finished and tucked into a lovely picnic. Everyone's legs started to seize up until the gazebo my brother and myself put up decided to blow down in the wind so everyone soon moved!
I would like to thank Angie Jefferson and all of her work colleagues at Marshalls in Cambridge for all of their support and for organising the picnic. All together we raised over £2000.00 for the Foundation.
I hope we can all meet again soon for the next event. Milton Summer Fayre 2009, Cambridge Saturday 11th July 2009.
