Rhea Paints for Rett, again!

By |March 11th, 2015|

Last year, 8 year old Rhea was one of many students at Eaton House Manor who joined in their school’s phenomenal fund-raising efforts for Reverse Rett.

Vincent’s ’40’ Challenge

By |February 26th, 2015|

          

In honour (fear) of his upcoming 40th birthday, Vincent decided to set himself a ‘mid-life crisis challenge’, to be completed between his 39th and 40th birthdays. The challenge consists of three parts:

Armel: Training for Hannah

By |February 26th, 2015|

 

Our good friend, Armel, has always been a bit of a nutter. He is French, after all. He takes his training and his sports very seriously, and he has undertaken physical challenges which only the super-fit would even contemplate. He has also always had a certain connection with Hannah, who is a sucker for a handsome man with a cheeky […]
