Over the weekend of the 13th July 2019, five members from Tactical Medical Wing Logistics Supply held a spinathon to raise awareness on behalf of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
The event was held at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and was very well supported by the thousands of race fans in attendance. Each team member completed a total of four hours spinning over both days.
Event organiser, Corporal Rob Thomson set the team a distance target of 306km per day, equal to the distance covered during the 52-lap race at the Grand Prix. The team smashed their target and achieved a total distance of 618.8km, raising a fantastic total of £1,282.44.
“I have been planning this event for a couple of years and I am thrilled that I was able to make it happen during the RAF Benevolent Fund’s centenary year, they are a fantastic organisation who do so much for the RAF Family. I am overwhelmed with the level of support people showed us over the weekend and grateful to Silverstone event staff for their support and hospitality. On behalf of the Tactical Medical Wing Logistics Supply, thank you.”
