Meet Pete Collison. Pete recently took part in the Isle of Wight Ultra Challenge - running 106km around the Island’s stunning coastal path, past the iconic Needles and historic town of Cowes.


Peter was spurred on by the care his dad received in 2023 when he had cancer surgery at the Churchill Hospital.


Pete said: “I’m grateful to the amazing staff and team that work across the NHS in particular the Oxford Hospitals. Thankfully he is now well on the road to recovery. “The 106-kilometre route felt longer, there was nearly 6,000ft of elevation gain in the 20 hours and 30 minutes it took!”


We are so grateful for Pete and all who have helped him raise £614 for the Churchill Hospital
