Neil Murphy Sailing Trust’s 1st Students

10 02 2014

The first recipients of funding from the Neil Murphy Sailing Trust experienced lakeland weather for their first taste of sailing.

9 boys and girls from Preston attended a hands-on, two-day session at Glenridding Sailing Centre surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Ullswater.

Quote of the day was on arrival – “Oh my god! Imagine living here.” Despite the cold, all had a great time. Let’s hope they are the first of many!

Trust triathletes triumph…..or did they????

24 09 2012

Great news from the London triathlon yesterday, Maddie and Martin both finished in stunning times! Ahem….

The results show Maddie as having taken 1 hour 23 mins while Martin is showing as taking a mere 23 minutes! Clearly there is some mistake or they wouldn’t have broken a sweat! Surely?

We’re saying nothing…

Looking like they’ve just been for a gentle stroll !

We’re most impressed, and, of course, bowled over by their willingness to raise funds for us.

The last word on pride, however, rests with Charlotte and Thomas…….

Aren’t Dads just the best?
