They far exceeded their original £750 target by raising a fantastic £900,

Sioned Taylor said: “This was one of the most challenging things we’ve ever completed – the London marathon was easy in comparison! I don’t think we had quite comprehended how steep some of the hills would be! We were lucky that the weather was good, and the views were breath-taking. The challenge was well organised, and I can’t fault the Macmillan team who supported us along the way and kept us motivated. Knowing we were raising money to help people affected by cancer kept us going and we are so pleased with everyone’s generous donations. For now, it’s feet up and wait for the blister to heal but I know we will be looking to our next challenge very soon!”
