Conna Powles signs up to wing-walk challenge

Company: Haskins Garden Centres

Haskins Buying Director, Conna Powles, signs up to a life-long ambition to complete a wing walk and in doing so hopes to raise £1k for Greenfingers Charity.

On 2nd July, over the beautiful county of Oxfordshire, Conna will spend 10 minutes strapped to the wings of a 1940’s Boeing Stearman Biplane.  She said “Many years ago, whilst sitting bored in a hotel room in China, my work done and no internet, I made a list of things I wanted to achieve and to do. I have ticked off a few now such as a parachute jump, abseiling, the Moon Walk and still to tick off was wing walking.  I like to complete a challenge or host an event every year for a cancer charity, having lost my brother recently and my sister is in remission.  After seeing the video about the children and the families and the benefits they get from having a beautiful space to go to, Greenfingers seemed the obvious choice to support.”
