Nearly there! Thanks to all for such incredible support and generosity. Photo is Horseshoes Hockey team August 1982 tour to San Francisco and Vancouver. Poustie is back row second from right. I am crouching down in front of him. My walk for Poustie has been an unforgettable experience for me. Very best wishes to you all.

Left at 7.30am today feeling good. Very sunny and I am just passing near Bloxham School. I am making very good time today and I've reached Chipping Norton - it's a very busy road, hence I'm not in the picture! Cracking on south for a few more hours. More donations being given along the way; people are so generous.
Clean socks and ready to go from Banbury to Chipping Norton early tomorrow morning. A huge thank you to the lady in the launderette for making a donation.
Ahead of schedule and as it is pouring with rain, looks like it may be a rest day unless it stops by lunchtime.
Took a wrong turn and did some extra miles, which now total 70. I am now relaxing in the Banbury Best Western after a very challenging walk in the rain!!
Outside a National Trust property 10 miles NE of Banbury
