David’s father, Greg, passed away in 2015 following a cardiac arrest which was a big shock to David and his family. He felt something good had to come from his loss and took on four fundraising challenges in 2016 to raise money for Magpas Air Ambulance. He and his friends took part in a New Year’s Day Swim, completed the Three Peaks Challenge, sky dived from 12,000 feet, and ran a half marathon in Greg’s memory.
“I wanted to be able to fund missions to save someone else’s life. Magpas Air Ambulance is a truly great cause and with my friends we’ve managed to raise over £5,000.”
