"It was horrific in parts, elated in parts. It was really good but really difficult at the same time.
Fundraising has gone well. We think we're at the £9,000 mark but we won't get a definite figure until the final count up tomorrow.
We are very very close to the total amount for the operation."
"The weather has been great, the group's been great and we've had a lot of fun, a lot of pain, but we've got through it and we've made it so yeah it's all worthwhile."
