RAF Boulmer personnel put themselves through a gruelling 24-hour crossfit challenge to raise £2,621.

Some £950 will be distributed between the Station’s supported charities – the Great North Air Ambulance, Amble RNLI Lifeboat and SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death).

The team also raised £1,671 independently for Tiny Lives in Newcastle.

Sergeant Sharon Rose, one of the organisers, said: “The fantastic support we received from colleagues, either by sponsoring us or by popping in to cheer us on, gave us the incentive to get through it.

“The team would like to say a massive thank-you to all those who supported the event and kept us motivated to complete the challenge.”

Station Commander, Group Captain Rich Jacob, said: “The whole team has been an inspiration and I am very proud of their achievement in raising so much money for charity.”
