Its wonderful to have the support of service personnel and none more so than the support of a whole Ship’s Company. As you may have seen from posts on Facebook, HMS CHIDDINGFOLD set themselves 4 massive challenges, swim the Channel, run the distance from Portsmouth to CHIDDINGFOLD, row the straights of Hamuz and lift the weight of the ship.

Star performers include CPO ‘Will’ Barbrook, who swam over 5000 metres, AB ‘Pickles’ Pickering who led the running and ET ‘Spud’ Murphy who lifted nearly 50 tons on the day.

A special thank you to the DWEO PO Wayne Cook who was one of the principle driving forces behind this event. Donations can still be pledge at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/…/showFundraiserProfilePage….

The ship have raised over £1000 so far. Merry Christmas HMS CHIDDINGFOLD who return to the UK in January
