After his very successful 100 mile cycle ride in September 2017, Dave Padfield is going to venture out on what he has described as “possibly the stupidest idea that I have had yet” to support POWER PLEAS. He is taking part in the Sutton Fun Run on Sunday 3rd June 2018, valiantly attempting to push his six year old son James around the 8.5 mile course on the Trike that James received from POWER PLEAS.

Five year old Milly Pearce and four year old Rhys Clift turned up at the opening of the massively refurbished Co-op superstore on Warstones Drive, Penn to say thank-you to the Co-op for supporting the local Charity POWER PLEAS that provided them with their trikes. POWER PLEAS has been nominated as one of the local charities to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund that receives 1% of all money that customers spend on own-branded goods from 12 November 2017 until 27 October 2018.
Following their recent request for friends to donate to POWER PLEAS in lieu of presents on the occasion of their Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations, Pat and Ken have raised the magnificent sum of £740 in donations. The charity is truly grateful and hope to mark the occasion when the next Trike is awarded to one of our recipients.
Pat and Ken Harris celebrate 50 years of married life this year. They asked for donations on their 70th birthdays to be given to POWER PLEAS, now as they celebrate their Golden Wedding they are asking friends to give to the Charity again.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club have inaugurated a Rachael Heyhoe Flint Award to commemorate the huge contribution that the late Baroness Heyhoe Flint made both to the Football Club in particular, but also the City of Wolverhampton.
The special celebration to mark the contribution of the late Baroness Rachael Heyhoe Flint to the lives of hundreds of local children with mobility problems through the annual collection on Saturday 22 April 2017 was a tremendously happy occasion.
On Thursday 20th January 2017 Darren Langston died peacefully at his flat. Darren was a committee member of POWER PLEAS and a great fund-raiser for the charity at our annual Wolves collections.
It is with deepest sadness that we heard today that we have lost a true friend of this charity. Baroness Heyhoe Flint, known to us as Rachael, and our Patron, was our greatest supporter.
