Somersham ladies set out on 250-mile Kenyan adventure

A GROUP of women in Somersham are set to embark on a 250-mile journey across Kenya to raise money for three cancer charities.

Kim Pedlar will leave Britain today (Saturday) with her sister-in-law Angie Wilson, 40, to the east African country ahead of starting the five-day adventure on Monday.

Kim, who works in vendor services at St Ives-based Move with Us, said: “I am really excited but extremely nervous at the same time. I can’t wait to leave.

“I am sure there will be loads of low points throughout the week but they will be outweighed by the number of highs I will experience.

“After the months of cycling, boxercise, and other training, if I am not fit enough now I will never be.”
