IV Squadron is a fast jet training unit in Wales and my close friend Wing Commander Kevin Marsh invited me out for the day to give me a tour and experience flying in a Hawk T2 jet! I got a great view over Wales and it went so fast that it made my tummy feel funny! I had such a fun day and got to see how exciting a job as a jet pilot could be! Love Brandon xxx
The Olympics are finally here! and in celebration of the start of London 2012 I thought you might like to see a photo of me with the Olympic Torch! I was kindly invited by my good friend Dieter Koch who is the General Manager of the Holiday Inn in Bolton to pose with the torch and I felt honoured!I hope you all join me in wishing Team GB the best of luck over the next few weeks…so let the games begin! Love Brandon xxxx
Duncan is Team GB’s world class physiotherapist and also a good friend of mine and he invited me to spend the day with him! One of Duncan’s jobs is to work with Team GB for the 2012 Olympics. August will be a very busy month for him and he told me that all the athletes have been training hard for the event and are looking forward to representing Great Britain! Despite his busy schedule, Duncan very kindly invited me to spend a day with him, I had a fantastic day watching our athletes train and even got to join in myself although it didn’t take my little legs long to tire with all the hard work! I know that you will join me in wishing all our wonderful athletes the very best of luck in the Olympic Games and of course the Paralympic Games! Love Brandon xxx
I want to share with you a picture that shows how important the work is that we do. All of these tablets are just one months supply for my very best friend Brandon Beech who has Cystic Fibrosis. He has to take over 50 tablets each day and is such a brave boy that he never complains. For the rest of his life he will have to visit the hospital every 4 months for 3 weeks at a time to get treatment, as well as undergoing daily sessions of physiotherapy all because of this horrible disease. I hope that you will all see how important it is to help me on my mission to promote Cystic Fibrosis, as together we can help change the lives of those affected with the disease and their families who have to deal with this on a daily basis. Lots of love Brandon the Lion xxx
Look what I found! Some photos from the Team 100 for Cystic Fibrosis Skydive that took place a few months back at Langar Airfield in Nottingham! Despite the weather being terrible and it having to be posponed, so many supporters came from the local area and some from as far away as Somerset! I made so many friends and enjoyed tea and biscuits under shelter away from the rain! In the end the total raised was over 13 thousand pounds which will go along way in helping the lives of Cystic Fibrosis sufferers! Love Brandon xxx
Hi to all my friends ! I hope you have had a fabulous weekend. I thought you would like to see what I got up to at the Bramham International Horse Trials which was a 4 day event in June. I was kindly invited to attend the event which was in aid of Cystic Fibrosis. How good is that !! I was so surprised to see some of the horse jumps were shaped like lions ! What a great idea ! Love Brandon xxx
My very dear friend Laura Jamieson (Head of Operational Excellence at Barclays Bank UKRBB) waved off a fantastic team on their 8 day cycle ride to Paris, all in aid of Cystic Fibrosis. Good luck to you all and accept my heartfelt thanks for all your efforts. Salut !Brandon xx
While I have been offline one of the events I attended was the fabulous Yorkshire 10k and 2k run in aid of Cystic Fibrosis. Around 400 runners took part in the run during May and a fantastic Day was had by all. I even hit the local headlines !!!!
