During 2016 I completed a Diamond Challenge to celebrate 60 years of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. As I am in my 60s and I use to skate in the 60s I set out to skate 60 hours having not skated for 45 years! The challenge was staying upright and fitting the hours in!
I managed to skate in Christchurch NZ, Brisbane Australia, Swindon, Twickenham, Basingstoke, Gosport and Winchester. I fell and broke my wrist on the 56th hour but fortunately have managed to squeeze the last 4 hours in within the allotted time. To all those who sponsored me I promised to match the funding raised and give it to CRY in memory of my son Phil Standing. I am pleased to say I have raised £200.
