Rose Powell and Flame Brewer, both 9, took to the skies over Gloucestershire last week as part of a wing-walking stunt to raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
The two cousins have become the world’s youngest formation wing-walkers as a result of their efforts to turn the spotlight on to one of the most severe muscle wasting conditions.
The synchronised wing-walk was performed on the wings of planes owned and flown by their grandfather, pilot Vic Norman. The activity has been in their family for generations and now the girls have become some of the youngest to carry on the legacy.
Although you won’t find any of us lot up on the wings of a plane anytime soon, we are adding a competitive edge to our own fundraising for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. Our 10for10 competition, which runs until the end of year, invites businesses and brilliant ideas of all shapes and sizes to submit their short proposal along with a £10 charity donation for the chance to win £10,000 worth of our expert services. We’re terrible at acrobatics, but we’re pretty hot at web design, so we’re giving away our super skills and the chance for you to transform your business.
