Supporter drags 30kg tyre 31.7 miles for Naomi House!
Stuart, owner of Foundry Fitness in Teddington, decided to take on a challenge like no other... a 12 hour, 30kg tyre drag through Swinley Forest, all support Naomi House & Jacksplace. Friends and supporters joined him throughout the challenge to boost morale and keep the energy up!
"I came to know about the great work of the hospices as a good friend of mine has a granddaughter with a rare genetic disorder - she was at Naomi House for a short period and he was blown away by the facility, staff, patients; the whole thing. I have a history of taking on endurance based, physical challenges to raise money for worthwhile causes, so Naomi House became an obvious choice. Once I looked at the website, I had no doubt that this was a hardworking and very deserving charity. On the day everything came together well. The advanced planning worked, the support from friends was fantastic and, although a real challenge, it was strangely enjoyable - maybe because I knew it was all going to such a deserving cause."
We are in absolute awe of Stuart and his incredible achievement - he has nearly raised £2,000! Thank you Stuart, you are brilliant!
