Walk 52 miles in 24 hours?

It makes perfect sense!

When it comes to intrepid fundraising attempts, we are not short of great examples in Oxhill.

Among the latest, and for which we sincerely hope you will be able to lend your support, is one from the so-called Oxhill Village People. Yes, seriously.

We are five determined Oxhillians who are currently in training to do The Ridge Walk for the national deaf blind charity Sense.

Along the ancient Ridgeway national trail through Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, starting at 2pm on Saturday 20 June and (hopefully) completing the 52 mile trek by 2pm on Sunday 21 June, will be Stuart Whittaker, Katy Dowding, Stuart Barker, Karen Barker and Adrian Marklew with minibus support from Belinda Marklew.

Just who gets to wear the Indian, cowboy, army, construction worker, motorbike cop or leathers gear from the famous 1970s has yet to be decided though!

It may not be the most sensible thing to do on what might be one of the hottest days of the year, but it makes perfect sense for us.

So, if you would like to sponsor the team from Oxhill please visit our Just Giving site to make a donation www.justgiving.com/oxhillvillagepeople

Our target is 1400, which will help Sense carry out its fantastic work in our communities. More information on the charity can be found at www.sense.org.uk
