Among the people to benefit from the fundraising event was Meden Vale man Richard Cheshire. The 21-year-old, who is paralysed from the chest down, was presented with a brand new £800 racing wheelchair. The Bonsalls got behind Richard’s cause after seeing a sponsorship form for donations to help buy a chair suitable for marathons. Richard has already completed a 26-mile slog in an NHS chair and now has his sights set on the London marathon.
The Bonsalls also donated £1,000 to the Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Blidworth, where Lee was a voluntary walker in his younger days.
