Captain James Wadsworth, CGC is very honoured and grateful to have been named on the New Year's Honours list. It has been announced that the Capt. Wadsworth will receive an MBE in recognition of both his role in the military and his charitable work.
Serving as a bomb disposal expert within the British Army, Capt. James Wadsworth CGC received the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross for extraordinary courage in 2008. Wadsworth has also worked tirelessly to raise money for his chosen charity, Felix Fund, which helps bomb disposal and search personnel and their families.
Capt. Wadsworth himself is delighted to have been recognised, on receiving the award he said, “I am so honoured to have been recognised and hope to achieve so much more in the future to help those who have served in the Army. I have dedicated my life to my country and work tirelessly to raise money for those who need it most, and don’t expect anything in return, so I’m privileged to be receiving an MBE”.
Capt. Wadsworth raises money for the Felix Fund primarily through his The Captain James Wadsworth Challenge. This challenge offers endurance events that see participants competing in a number of events throughout the year including cycling, running, and swimming.
In 2018 alone, the challenge raised £13,100 for the Felix Fund. Capt. Wadsworth, it seems, isn't content with that and he has already announced three endurance events to raise even more money in 2019.
These events include;
Charity, NGO, social enterprise and not for profit
Confectionery and chocolate
Countryside and gardening
Government and public sector
Fashion and beauty
Food and drink
Health and fitness
Healthcare and pharmaceutical
Utilities and transport
Digital & Design
