A huge thank you to our Ambassador Sean Allerton, who has recently ‘pushed’ yet more miles in his wheelchair, to raise money for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope, and for the three RAF charities he also supports. Since losing the use of his hands and legs over twenty years ago whilst in Service with RAF in Cyprus, in a motorcycle crash, Sean has proven himself to be a true champion of people who live with disabilities; always encouraging others, and being grateful for what he has and what he can do. We too are immensely grateful to Sean for the example he is to all of us – and of course for the funds he has raised! THANK YOU SEAN. So, here he is – in September, scaling the roof of the O2 Arena, accompanied by ELoH Trustees Sarah Hope and Victoria Bacon, and members of his ‘RAF Family’. It was an amazing day – a clear blue sky giving us an amazing view of London – after which we all went to Ten Downing Street for a special visit, in recognition of the Points of Light Award Sean received from the Prime Minister last year (and Sarah and I received in 2015.)And here is Sean again, at his latest ‘Push’ at RAF College Cranwell, in Lincolnshire; also with Sarah and Victoria and Pollyanna Hope; this time with the Scottish Band ‘The Proclaimers’ too, whose song “If I Could Walk 500 Miles”, released in 1987, was the inspiration behind Sean’s idea to push for charity, in the way that he does.So far, Sean has raised over £38,000 and has pushed more than 2000 miles.
