was cared for by Iain Ren­nie nurses in 2002, has taken part in ev­ery Chilterns 3 Peak Chal­lenge since it started six years ago, with grand­daugh­ter Vic­to­ria Hull

MORE than 650 peo­ple pulled on their walk­ing boots to climb the Chiltern hills and raise cash for char­ity, writes Jo-Anne Rowney.

The walk­ers stepped out on Sun­day to raise money for Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care.

It was the sixth year peo­ple have taken on the Chilterns 3 Peaks Chal­lenge.

Fam­i­lies, friends and col­leagues chose be­tween a five, nine or 18-mile route start­ing in Princes Ris­bor­ough.

Ren­nie Grove chief ex­ec­u­tive Jenny Provin, who took part with son Max, said: “I thor­oughly en­joyed walk­ing the five-mile route and talk­ing along the way to all the dif­fer­ent peo­ple tak­ing part. It was a chance to ap­pre­ci­ate the English coun­try­side and the emerg­ing au­tumn colours at their very best.

“There was such a friendly at­mos­phere among the walk­ers and I was re­ally struck by how much support there is for the work that we do.”

The char­ity has to raise more than £6.5mil­lion a year to care for 3,000 pa­tients and fam­i­lies.
