Dear All, I am delighted to say I have completed my first Challenge the 12K


Rock Solid Race. The team of 13 supported me from start to finish and we completed the 12k course with over 35 obstacles in 2 hours 30 minutes. this was physically and mentally challenging but all your support gave me the extra bit I needed to com-plete it.


I have been absolutely overwhelmed and humbled by all your


generosity and am delighted to say I have raised over £25K which is more than I ever dreamt of.


Henry’s progress is slow but I am pleased to say we have been


granted funding for Henry to move to Tadworth Court http://www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk.


Henry will be here for 6 months and will undergo intensive Neuro


Rehabilitation in or-der for him to come home in October, one year on!! Moving onto my next challenge on the 21st June I will be taking part


in a world record attempt parachute jump with 292 people aiming to jump out of a plane within 24 hours. I’d be really grateful if you could sponsor me at: http://www.skydiveukltd.com/guinness-world-record-skydive/


Once again thank you everyone for your generosity it really means a lot to me. https://www.justgiving.com/teams/PhilipMarsh


Kind Regards
