Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AFUN day took place in a vil­lage at the week­end in or­der to raise money for char­ity. The event went ahead in Penn Street Vil­lage on Sun­day and was or­gan­ised by Gemma Cochrane, 34, of Ger­rards Cross, whose four-year-old daugh­ter Mil­lie suf­fers from cys­tic fi­bro­sis.

The day was fo­cused on ex­er­cise and in­cluded a 5km run, as well as a zum­bat­hon and a fancy dress race, and was part of an ini­tia­tive started by Mrs Cochrane to en­cour­age as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to com­plete a sport­ing event to raise money for char­ity.

Funds raised from the event will be do­nated to the Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Trust, which funds re­search into the con­di­tion.
