View Full Version : Hinkley point power station fun run.

7th June 2011, 23:27
As some of you know, I spent the last 27 years working at Hinkley point power station, until I retired this March. Every year we hold our fun run, which is 10 K ish run from the power station to a pub in a village nearby.

This year due to mean retiring, the proceeds will be going to the MNDA, via my jaded John Charity appeal.

If you look at my website you see a couple of pictures on their.

I was asked us set the race off, which I did with my five-year-old son, both wearing MNDA T-shirts.

It will be interesting to see much monies is raised, the video below is of the warmup and myself and my son setting the race off.
