Congratulations to Becky Newman, trustee of HSWL, who has been named as one of only three people from across the UK competing for the title of Campaigner of the Year in the annual awards run by Headway UK!
Becky ran the North Pole marathon in 2012 and raised almost £9,000 for Headway South West London. Not content with that, Becky also plans to run the Great Wall of China Marathon and the South Pole Marathon in 2013, while 2014 will see her taking on the infamous Marathon des Sables. It’s a 180km run across the Sahara Desert and generally considered to be the toughest foot race on Earth.
The Campaigner of the Year will be named at a glittering ceremony at The Dorchester Hotel in London on 7 December, along with awards for the Volunteer, Carer and Achiever of the Year, and the Stephen McAleese Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award.
