Dame Hannahs supporter Rosy Holland is bravely celebrating her 70th birthday with a Wing Walk.

Having celebrated her 60th birthday with a flight in a Tiger Moth, daredevil Rosy has decided that she is not ready to slow down yet and is keen to take on a new challenge.

The Wing Walk takes place at Bodmin Airfield on July 2.

Rosy retired from teaching 15 years ago and decided to support Dame Hannahs when she met a young person supported by the charity.

Rosy has already raised £3,000 for Dame Hannahs but is still busy fundraising. She is a member of several groups who have all helped her raise money for the charity.

She organised a cake and coffee sale for her Taiko Drumming group, Teignmouth Methodist Church organised a cream tea while her walking group and Singalong group have also been helping her fundraise.

She has also been supported by families from Trinity Prep School where she taught for 20 years.

In all her fundraising efforts she is supported by her husband Ken and children Andrew and Clare and their families. Keen photographer Ken has given some photography presentations of their recent trip to India and also raised money for Dame Hannahs.

Rosy said: “I wanted to do the Wing Walk to show people that whatever age you are you can still be an inspiration to others. Dame Hannahs is a wonderful charity and there is such a lot of joy there”.

Emma Boulton from Dame Hannahs fundraising team said: “Rosy is such a huge inspiration to us all."
