DIARY: Cutter's Peruvian trip calls Wheldon's bluff

When CIA boss David Wheldon said he'd match the sponsorship of one

of his staff about to embark on a physical endurance test, he reckoned

he'd get change from a tenner.

After all, as a self-confessed coach potato who'd shown little

enthusiasm for anything more energetic than opening the fridge for a

beer, the strategic planner Lee Cutter was unlikely to be doing anything

remotely challenging.

But Cutter has signed up for a 100-mile mountain yomp across Peru in aid

of the cerebral palsy charity Scope.

Cutter is now pounding the streets, binning the kebabs and venturing

into the gym. So the rest of CIA has stopped referring to the trip as an

'extended holiday' and are emptying their pockets of cash.

He's well on the way to raising pounds 1,500 and hopes to raise another

grand (yes, David, a grand) before he goes.

'Lee played a bit of weekend football but otherwise spent most of his

spare time in the pub,' squeaks a perspiring Wheldon while rummaging in

a drawer for his cheque-book. Looks like he'll be forking out rather

more than 50p then.
