Throughout this, his 60th birthday year, Andrew has undertaken a few sporting challenges with the aim of raising money for MHRUK. The challenges started with a 15,000ft skydive on the actual birthday day and from which he is still in recovery! Thereafter came The Great Manchester Run (10K); The Great North Swim; a one-mile outdoor swim event in Ullswater and a one-mile outdoor swim event in Coniston Water. The challenging year ended in the successful completion of the Great North Run in Newcastle.

To date (and including Gift Aid) Andrew has raised somewhere in the region of £1700 for MHRUK … indeed a worthy cause.
