Wheel Power celebrates raising nearly £25m for Stoke Mandeville

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / Wheel Power celebrates raising nearly £25m for Stoke Mandeville
Last night, I attended a House of Lords celebration of Robin Courage's fantastic efforts over the past fifteen years which has led us (I was part of his team when an MP) to raise almost £25m for wheel chair sport at Stoke Mandeville. My part was minimal: we had been beaten back by the Lottery twice and so I persuaded Kate Hoey, the Sports Minister, to spend a day following the Lottery but to make sure she arrived when they were deciding our third application and magically and coincidentally, we won £5.5m which was about half of the the then funding we needed.

To say "Thank you" Robin presented each of his team with a painting which was very touching: it took us all by surprise.
