AS we progress we are acutely conscious that we are missing a dear friend who rode with us all 3 and 6 years ago on similar quests, to raise the profile of the charity and a bit of money. Richard Holmes kept us entertained and fascinated by his knowledge of the history of this great land we live in. WE very much re,member him and this shot taken on the Henry Tudor Ride brings it all back. It is marvellous that his two daughters are riding with us on Friday and Saturday.
Whilst we have been riding the charity has helped dozens of cases and more than this tome last year. Cpl J is 29 years old, Married with 1 young child. He had served in
Afghanistan, Iraq, and . He was injured in 2 separate IED blasts in Northern Ireland and as a result has many medical and neurological problems. He can barely walk, is in continual pain and is in severe discomfort sitting in an ordinary chair. A recent Occupational Therapy report concluded that he needed a specialist Riser/Reclining chair, which cost in excess of £2000. ABF The Soldiers Charity made a Current Operations Fund Grant of £2052 to fund the purchase of a specialist riser/reclining chair. Afghanistan
