Why is it Honda of Bournemouth's Official Charity for the year?
Stuart will be attending the Salomon Trial Marathon in Wales on the 20th of June 2015.
Stuart's son, Dexter, has been diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1 earlier in 2014. The medication which Dexter needs and receives on a daily basis is given freely. Stuart feels that it is important to raise money for other children in his position, so they can enjoy the same support and care.
So, Stuart needs your help folks! please donate and show your support here: Stuart August's Trial Marathon Wales.
This will be very much appreciated!
Thank you everyone!
