Thank You Lewis!

When we launched our Sunshine 10X Challenge back in March, we never guessed that one of the challenges would be to pull TEN full-sized trucks!

But that’s exactly what Lewis Bucknell has done for his challenge! Lewis is the daddy of one of our Sunshine & Smilers, Rupert, and regularly competes in Strong Man competitions. When he heard about the sunshine 10X Challenge, he decided he was going to complete 10 truck pulls this summer - and he finished his challenge last weekend and has raised almost £1,500 in the process!

We’ve also just heard that Lewis will be doing a BONUS pull in October - he’ll be competing at the UK Bus Pull Championships at the Yorkshire Transport Museum on the 8th October, where he will be pulling a double decker bus then attempting TWO buses tied together!

If you’d like to support Lewis for his amazing challenge, you can do so here.
