October 2015 saw a Stormtrooper (a.k.a fundraiser David White) take on the Great South Run to raise funds for Candlelighters and RNRMC!

Not shy of taking on a challenge, David decided to run the course whilst in a full stormtrooper costume! Unfortunately, prior to the event David broke his foot – however he didn’t let this stop him! With a cast on, David walked the entire length of the run in his costume, whilst collecting funds for the two charities. In addition to this, David also organised a whole of host of other fundraising events in the lead up to the run, around his training.

Altogether David’s efforts have raised £1791 for Candlelighters and RNRMC! We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to David for all of his support and all of his hard work, despite the challenges he faced along the way – as said by Star Wars’ very own Qui-Gon Jinn “your focus determines your reality”!
