Five amazing fundraisers

We've had a brilliant 2019! To celebrate here are just five of our favourite fundraising moments.

100 marathons

Avid runners Diane and Nick Armstrong completed their 100th marathon on 18 May 2019.

They organised the run in memory of Nick’s mum and fellow marathon runner Valerie Harrold.

Diane and Nick raised over £4,000 and all the proceeds went to our Holehird care home in Windemere where Valerie was a resident.

Jennie Goodrum and her team took on the tough Nightrider Bristol cycling challenge and raised £1,000.

Our inclusive cycling project Gloucestershire Wheels for All inspired Jennie to get pedalling.

In honour of our founder, RAF Pilot Leonard Cheshire, the duo began their journey at RAF Scampton.

Sophie and Gary raised an amazing £1,000.

Superheroes for a day

Our amazing service, Randall Close, had a team take on the Superhero Tri in August. They did a fantastic job!

Marvin even composed a rap about his experience, ending with ‘Three people chasing the same dream, All three of us can make a superhero sports machine’.
