OCTOBER NEWS

This month 181 members, including four new members, attended our meeting.

We were treated to the postponed talk from Luke Wigman. What an inspirational man, the talk was 45 mins so I can’t tell you all of it but from being in the RAF and stepping on an IED, through all the training and hard work to overcome a very bad leg injury he ended up running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days and all in aid of a charity. There were many light moments in the talk and plenty of laughter. Several questions came from the floor at the end and members were leaving many of the members wanted to stop and have a chat with Luke. Asked what he would change if he could and his answer was NOTHING. It is worth saying again, what an inspirational young man.
