It is great that there is help available. I did a fund raising sponsored all around our lakes and was given a keg of beer by the brewery. So after 5 laps the walkers could go to the nearby pub for a free beer. I ran a London Marathon for the children at Much Hadham. I had my first fit at 15 but it was overlooked although unexpected and very dramatic. Had about 15 but am fit free and 74 and a lot of work behind me.
