Thank you to everyone who supported us, from donors, to the team members and their families.

Thank you to Zuleika, not least for overcoming your fears (three times). What next for you?
Thank you to our friends and families for supporting us on the day. Lyn, James, Stuart, Kira, Dee, Jo, Matt, Leeanne, our chairman of trustees, Bob and last, but by no means least Rokai, 5 in August and Matthew, 6 next February, both of whom descended three times each.

It’s not essential, but bring your camera if you have one (or camera phone) plus instruction manual if available. The group’s viability & frequency depends on support & attendance.
