|The Golden Ball, West Wycombe Hill|
To run up to the Golden Ball I had to run up West Wycombe Hill. It is a long climb and in the warm weather it involved lots of sweating and panting. Once reaching the ball the path followed into the National Trust woods which continued the climb.
It was nice to see through the gaps of the trees the building of The Clare Foundation appear, knowing we would soon be heading downhill. The Clare Foundation is a 'Charity Hub' set up by Mike Clare (a serial entrepreneur and founder of Dreams ). The building houses local charities based in Bucks, Berks and Oxfordshire for subsidised rates. The offices of the Child Bereavement Charity are housed within this hub. For Challenge 1000 this is one of the charities I am raising money for. Before being based here this the charity was based in Aston House in West Wycombe. So West Wycombe and Saunderton is the home territory of the charity.
In the picture above I am surrounded by 3 copper figures designed by an artist called Lucy Casson. Here they are closer up...
