On Sunday, I was invited as a guest to The Sedan Chair Race at the Matilda Hospital where I had my surgery done almost a year ago. Dr Liu was in the Matilda Surgeon’s team as Ghostbusters. I really like his outfit and his gun definitely had slime in it I’m sure! Everyone was dressed up and they had to carry a sedan chair round the Peak and back again. All the money raised goes to charity. Sailability is one of the beneficiaries of the race. I really enjoyed my self and got to meet the Star Wars crew also.
At the end, the CEO of Matilda, Linda Burgoyne and her friend came running up to us. They said, Jack – what are you raising money for? I said, for Perthes and Sailability. And then to our suprise, they said, “Well.. Matilda is going to donate a new boat and sail to Sailability for next year! Well done Jack for writing your blog, we would never as known if you didn’t write about your journey!” My mum gave them both a big hug and we told Kay and Mike right away!
Everyone was happy!
