Just before Christmas 2020 Haddenham resident Peter Mason suffered a cardiac arrest in the community. He was fortunate in having with him two companions who were able to give CPR and summon help.
Peter was admitted to Intensive Care, barely alive, but with the help of the hospital staff has made close to a full recovery.
As part of the recovery process Peter received several scans and this prompted him to help raise money for a more sophisticated scanner which will help save more lives in the future.
The Scannappeal Lands End to John O'Groats challenge started on 1st May and thanks to the support of Peter's running friends he and his colleaguues have fielded two teams to take on the challenge, a virtual Lands End to John O'Groats run.
The teams are:
Team 1 — Team Ticker — Peter, Paul, Tony, Lynn, Pat, Brenden, Sandra & Kathryn
Team 2 — Vital Spark — Phil, AJ, Barry, Lynne, Linda, Steve & Maria
They are each recording their daily mileage with the aim of covering a total of 874 miles per team. Who will reach John O'Groats first?
