Saturday 10th        

Shindo Wadokai Karate Association   Karate Challenge  10am

Raising money for Macmillan Cancer Care

HNT's Rachel and her sons William and Peter took up this challenge at Sherborne Prep School and joined others fund raising for this important cause.  Over 100 individuals took up the 4000 moves challenge.

Organised by Peter Fawbert of the Shindo Wadokai Karate Association, with support from 5 world champions including Grand Master Gary Wasiewski who were giving demonstrations and mini coaching sessions.

Rachel's primary task was to present a cheque obo Rotary Sherborne Castles to the karate club from the Community Fund and to support her sons but never being one to say no to a challenge......

A quick demonstration and coaching session it was into action with sparing partner author Damien Lewis.

Hopefully a new link formed for HNT.
