Wing Walking - done! Watch the video!

3rd July 2017

Challenge 5, complete!

What were you doing last weekend? Some of you may have been enjoying the sunshine on the beach, maybe enjoying a Sunday afternoon walk or firing up the BBQ in your back garden. For me, I was flying through the air at 130mph whilst strapped to the wing of a plane.

10 other supporters joined me on Sunday at Compton Abbas Air Field as one by one we all went Wingwalking for Weldmar!


The views were incredible, the feeling amazing and the money raised, even better. On the day alone, we helped raise over £10,000 for Weldmar Hospicecare.

Thank you to all of those who took part in the Wingwalk to for Weldmar:  Ruta Beadle, Patrick Butler, Brogan Du Plooy, Ivonna Poplanska, Sadie Antell, Niki Davis, Luke Pope, Ella Cane-Mould, Nicky Dyer, Shirley Pugsley and Jo Rolls.

So, that’s five challenges down so far this year and another five to go. Don’t forget, you can join me on our upcoming cycling challenge in September, 170 miles over 3 days between all of our charity shops across Dorset.
