The club is very proud to learn that Robin has been awarded an MBE in recognition of his charity raising efforts over the past 40 years.
Robin, who celebrates his 76th birthday next month, has raised more than £150,000 for good causes, ranging from Buxton and Lamas Sea Scouts, to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), by competing in cycling and running events all over the UK and Europe.
As well as running ten marathons, he has taken part in Cromer’s Boxing Day swim for 20 years and completed cycling challenges including riding 1,000 miles from Switzerland to Budapest. Last year he gained the accolade of being the oldest of 20 riders to complete the 1,000 -mile journey from Lands’ End to John O’Groats.
To add to this incredible list Robin will be raising money in a couple of weeks’ time for WheelPower (who are a children’s wheel chair sports charity) by cycling the Diss 100. If you would like to donate to this charity then you can either donate via his fund raising page http://.virginmoneygiving.com/RobinRush or alternatively send a cheque to: 13 Pound Lane, Aylesham, Norfolk, NR11 6DR
