Not just a busy auctioneer.........

This weekend Giles Hodges proved that there's more to him than meets the eye, when he took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge as part of the British Military Fit team.

The team started at the ridiculously early time of 4am at Ben Nevis (1344m) in Scotland completing the first mountain in 4 hours 15 minutes,

then drove down to Scafell Pike (978m) in the Lakes where they started climbing at 2pm finishing in 3 hours 30 minutes

and then drove on to Mount Snowdon (1085m) in Wales arriving at 10.30pm and completing at 2.30am!

Giles and Caroline Hodges 3am Sunday morning very tired but happy!

This involved walking approximately 27.5 miles (up-hill!) and driving for about 10 hours.

Giles took part in this mammoth feat to raise money in aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign.

His fundraising target was £1000 and we are delighted to announce that he succeeded and has already raised over £1,200

But every penny counts.... if you would like to donate to this very worthy cause please see Giles' fundraising page and give as generously as you can.

Many Thanks
