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.
