He’s only gone and done it!!

As you all know, we have been following the progress of our previous employee, Wayne Russell on his great run around the British mainland coast. He has been running alone for the last 10 months and finding places to sleep and things to eat via the help of welcoming strangers along the way.

Wayne started the run in September last year and has now finally completed over 5000 miles to his finish line!

He decided to do this epic challenge in remembrance of his sister, Carmel Webb and I can now reveal he has raised a whopping…

…£27,694.02!!!

The money which he has raised is going to be donated to the fantastic Superhero Foundation charity - which helps give families in need the treatments for mental or physical illness that they wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise.

He has seemed to take the nation by storm with his massive efforts and has been on ITV talking about his journey too! You can follow his 10 month story on his Facebook page where you will find an array of posts and videos documenting his adventure.

Below is a fantastic video of Wayne going through his finish line...

3 of the RSVP Directors, countless staff and Wayn'es friends and family watched him complete his amazing mission.  His mum came with other family members and people he had met and stayed with came from far and wide, with a couple coming up from cornwall to see him complete his mammoth run!

From everyone here at RSVP, a huge well done to Wayne for completing the massive challenge and congratulations on raising such an enormous amount of money – You really are a superhero!!
