I am delighted to report that my WingWalk on 18th May 2016, at AreoSuperBatics Ltd, RFC Rendcomb Airfield, Cirencester, went extremely well and was just amazing in windy conditions and a break in the weather allowed the afternoon flight's to take place. Just a few hundred feet up and at speeds of around 110mph it was difficult to smile or waive for obvious reasons.
I must take this opportunity to thank The Lord Roborough Lodge 5789 and the Queen Victoria Chapter 2655 , together with the many individual sponsors masons and non-masons who kindly gave to this local worthwhile cause. It gave me much pleasure to present a cheque to HeartSWell Southwest for the sum of:- £1.010.00
The Charity account is open until the end of June anyone wishing to donate may do so by going to www.justgiving.com and click on John's doing it for HeartSWell South West.
Once again, many thanks for your kind support and good wishes.
HeartSWell South West is a registered charity committed to supporting heart patients, their partners and carers across the Westcountry.
What HeartSwell Plymouth Lodge provides:
The Plymouth Lodge provides accommodation for relatives, friends, and carers of patients undergoing treatments in Derriford and any of the local hospitals, including the Peninsular Treatment Centre and the Nuffield. The Lodge also provides accommodation for patients who are admitted to Derriford on the day of their planned surgery, but who live too far away to travel on the day. There is a small but excellent team who are both helpful and supportive. The Lodge is also convenient for relatives of patients transferred to Derriford for treatments from other hospitals in Devon and Cornwall, including Torbay, Exeter, North Devon and Treliske.
