Glenn's on a wing and a prayer

The sky’s the limit for St Anne’s Rugby Club member Glenn Warhurst.

For the 50-year-old set the bar high…very high when it came to thrill seeking fundraising.

Swapping the rugby club ground for the runway Glenn took to the skies to raise funds for Royton-based Dr Kershaws
Hospice by participating in a ‘Wing Walk’, saying he ‘loved every minute of it’.

The flight took off at Aero-
SuperBatics in Cirencester where Glenn took to the skies on the top wing of a Boeing Stearman biplane, experiencing an exciting series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks in front of his family and friends.

Glen was gifted the experience from wife, Gaynor, for his birthday.

And his adrenaline pumping adventure raised an amazing £2,870 for patient care at Dr
Kershaw’s Hospice.
