Boots at the ready: Fundraising joy for Vicki as she takes step closer to Peru trek

FUNDRAISER Vicki Wright has her hiking boots at the ready after she took a step closer to conquering the 26-mile Inca Trail in Peru.

The Fenland youth worker is just �300 short of raising the �3,700 needed to go on the Macmillan Cancer Support trek in May.

And her fundraising events have been so successful that she has now decided to try and raise �5,000 for the charity.

Vicki said her last event, a race night at The Cock Inn, in March, raised more than �1,200 towards the total.

She said: “I have been totally amazed at the support I have received and I can’t thank people enough.”
