Fundraising in 2010 Posted October 26, 2010 by Adrian Nance


Adrian beats a Pantomime Horse!

Fundraising in 2010 was a stamina thing!  You believe in something and you need to be able to persevere in it! We believe in Wings and what it is trying to do. So the CEO got his running shoes on and got involved.

And, he did it!  Adrian, our CEO and a founder, ran the Great South Run a third time – not very fast – but he did it! And it is 16 kilometers or 10 miles around Historic Portsmouth (and some less historic bits too).

He’s not prepared to go too public on how long it took him. So how long would it take you to run past HMS VICTORY and HMS WARRIOR with 10,000 other people? That may be public knowledge, you may be proud… HE WOULDNT SAY!

But he did hold off the pantomime horse!  Boy, it looks like it hurts!

It wasn’t just him….

Adrian’s son and a close friend also raced around the course.

Amazing. And they raised thousands of pounds for the charity! That was some of our fundraising in 2010. Thank you for supporting them!

Why not get involved too?

What about joining our Facebook community…

Or, you can donate to help us respond to disasters. We helped save 400 lives in 2019, for example.

Maybe just contact us, to ask you question and find out more?

We wont be asking you to run the Great South Run, or to cycle to the North Cape or even to climb Kilimanjaro.

You can if you like, but why not get involved?
