Runners and supporters gathered at Exbury Gardens to run (and support) 10km and to celebrate Rachel's final run in the UK before she heads for a land "Down Under".
It was hot and windy on the course but very pretty. Special mentions to Jo for making the right decision to stay on the sidelines post-illness and to Aoife for an excellent run, 7 minutes quicker than she predicted.
Post running and cheering, it was all about the picnics, with an impressive array of food from Rachel's family and some very calorific baking from Jen!
We gave Rachel her card (kudos to Wilson for her production skills) and a print of her 200 good deeds t-shirt design (thanks Angela) to be displayed in a prominent place in her new home.... just to make sure she doesn't forget us or her awesomeness in her 200+ good deeds. :)
We then got to have a wander round the gardens, which were beautiful and John got some extra running in chasing Jack!
Shearwater is a care home for people with dementia.
Their garden area is a bit overgrown and needs a bit of care and attention. They are also hoping to get a few of the residents out to have a chat with us.
Meet outside Miltoncross school to walk around to Moorings Way - about a 10 minute walk.
