Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Lily Matheson and Dom Larkin
On the 6th May 2012, Lily Matheson and Dom Larkin successfully completed The Fan Dance Challenge in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.
Thankfully, conditions were perfect for the event and the team timings were as follows:
Started at the Storey Arms at 10am
Arrived at the top of the Fan at 1130
Arrived at the halfway point at 1325
Set off on the return route at 1410
Arrived at the top of the Fan at 1545
Finished at the Storey Arms at 1700
The kids were absolutely fantastic and were up for the challenge from the word go, never once questioning the severity of the climb or the time that it took to complete. 9 year old Ruby M also walked from the halfway point to the finish....yet another excellent effort shown on the day.
With special thanks to:
Jude, Tony, Hannah, Ruby, Kate, Tim, Jared, Ian, Isaac, Dave for the excellent halfway refreshment set up, all those who waved us off and to all those who were there at the finish, it was sincerely appreciated.
A very special thanks to:
All those that have kindly donated across the globe. The response has been absolutely incredible and has been matched by Lily and Dom's efforts on the day.
To all those the Pilgrims who gave kit, advice and support from the get go, equally to Mark E and the H4H team, Ian Morris for the Hereford Times coverage, Stuart Turpin for the BBC Hereford and Worcester slot, Russ T for the Serbus Group promo, and also
Lance B at Career Link for the promo to.
Last but not least:
To our absent friends, it was worth every single step.
About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
