19 + 5 = £1,262

Just like the Grand Old Duke of York, they walked to the top of the hill and they walked back down again.

But unlike the fabled duke, they also walked 25 kilometres around it – and they raised more than £1,200 in the process.

The walkers in question were 19 big-hearted employees and friends of the CCG, the hill they scaled was Tegg’s Nose near Macclesfield, and their worthy cause was East Cheshire Hospice.

The mile-munching hikers battled wind, rain and the occasional blister to complete the gruelling trek in a little under seven hours on Sunday, 26 October.

And their heart-racing heroics came to fruition on Friday 21 November when they presented a cheque for £1,262.69 to hospice fundraising manager Camilla Crockett.



Camilla said:

“We’re so grateful to the CCG for going much further than the extra mile to raise this impressive total, which will make an important contribution to our work of making every day count for people with life-limiting illnesses.

“The CCG’s latest donation follows hot on the heels of the £242 they gave us in September from the proceeds of their staff coffee mornings and World Cup sweepstake.”

The Tegg’s Nose trek was organised by CCG contract manager Sally Larvin who revealed: “We’d only set a target of £250 so were absolutely thrilled to raise so much, thanks to the generosity of friends, family and colleagues.

“As an organisation that plans and buys healthcare for 204,000 people, we’re always keen to support providers of vital services to our population.”

The CCG has also raised £440 this year for Macclesfield Mind, which provides information, advice and support for people with mental health problems; and £320 for the East Cheshire branch of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Know Any Drama Queens?

Sometimes my dog can really be a drama queen. She's a Boxer and generally well-behaved, but occasionally something very trivial can set her off. A single quick chirp from the smoke detector or a glimpse of me using a broom and she becomes a quivering, whining ball of fur who suddenly believes she is a lap dog.

My dog's propensity to create drama out of something so little reminds me of what we do sometimes as humans. A friend has been hurt by a thoughtless comment or slighted by their partner's actions. Instead of addressing the issue directly with the other person, they let it stew and stir up their emotions. Now that offhand remark has turned into major drama in their head, which often translates into dramatic behavior too.

Let's agree not to create drama. Before we let something small get out of hand, let's go to our partner or friend or boss and attempt to resolve the issue. Don't be a drama queen -- drama never gets us anywhere.
