Cycling Success for Wolverley Memorial Project Chairman 2015

On Friday 26th June, Richard Millner (Chairman of Wolverley Memorial Project) completed his ambitious 100 mile hand-cycle challenge to raise funds for the Wolverley Memorial Project and SSAFA.

Richard and his team of support riders bravely set off from Thrapston, Northamptonshire and after a tortuous 100 miles they reached the finish line in Cromer, Norfolk, where they were greeted to crowds of cheers and applause. Injured whilst in the RAF, Richard courageously used only his upper body strength on a specially adapted hand-cycle, to travel this great distance. He was be supported by a team of volunteers including a medic, mechanic, coach and his well-wishers.

His outstanding achievement has raised over £5000, which is way beyond the £1000 he set out to achieve! This will be split between his two charities, the Wolverley Memorial Project and SSAFA, which is the UK’s oldest national military charity and provides lifelong support for our Forces and their families.
It’s not too late to sponsor Richard, you can do so online at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/richardmillner1

“Last Night of the Proms” is a triumph for Wolverley Memorial Project! 2015

Saturday evening saw the glorious “Last Night of the Proms” concert in Wolverley Memorial Hall. A wonderful evening packed full of British patriotism, flag waving and song, to a sell-out audience of many local people. The audience were greeted with a glass of bubbly and a hall unashamedly decorated in union flags.

The singing was provided by Kidderminster Male Choir, who had very generously donated their services for the evening. They were in fine voice with in excess of 30 singers standing proud in their red jackets. They led the audience in the National Anthem after the Royal British Legion had presented the Standard, giving a suitably patriotic start to the programme. The evening included such highlights as “The Dam Busters March” and “Jerusalem”. It was finished off with a very rousing “Land of Hope and Glory”, with the audience on their feet, waving flags and firing party poppers.

The concert also featured a guest appearance by a group from the cast members from Wolverley Village Players, who presented a very amusing rendition of “Ernie” (… he drove the fastest milk cart in the West!) A short interlude of typical British Comedy! Another highlight was Ian Allarton, Musical Director from Wolverley Village Players, who treated the audience to his wonderful guitar and singing talents. Ian encouraged the audience to sing along to some old favourites and a great Beatles medley.

The event was a real triumph of local enthusiasm and a tribute to Wovlerley as a community. Exactly what our project is all about!
