An earlier start than first planned, meant that Vicki and I were joined by Beth, Sam and Betsy to clock up some extra steps and deliver some leaflets for the Fratton Fun Day on Sunday.

We did Clive Road first with Betsy putting leaflets through all the low letterboxes and Beth & Vicki starting on the side that seemed to have more houses!

We heard the ice cream van and his techno wild west music doing the rounds of the Fratton roads and when we were half way down Newcombe Road we saw a man who'd bought 3 ice creams... one of which he gave to Betsy - obviously impressed by the amount of enthusiasm she brought to the leaflet drop!

We ran out of leaflets early into Sheffield Road and were back at the start in about 35 minutes.

Team work makes the dream work!

p.s. that was good deed number 400 for me tonight, 100 to go till the next t-shirt!!
