April Newsletter

WWWEventscollage.130806Welcome to our April newsletter.
What a month…I think it can be said that our fundraisers have a spring in their step.  From the remarkable Trevor Collett who ran 2 out of 6 days of the gruelling Marathon des Sables without his own kit to the outstanding achievement of 7 year old Olivia climbing Mount Snowdon.  Both their efforts exemplify everything our charity represents, the tenacity and ability to overcome the elements and achieve.  This is exactly the same message we communicate to our beneficiaries.
As always it is very humbling to be party to the extraordinary efforts our supporters undertake on our behalf – so thank you!
Yours,
Ed Parker
CEO and Co-founder of WWTW
