The Frontline Walk 2022: The Western Front

I'm fundraising for the Army Benevolent Fund (Soldier's Charity)

Last month, I took part in the Frontline Walk - a 3 day 100km trek, visiting the battlefields and graves in the Somme and Paschendaele, to commemorate the sacrifices made by those who fought for our freedom whilst helping to support the soldiers and veterans of today.

This was my second walk and I had the privilege to play the bagpipes, as we walked through the town of Ypres, finishing at the Menin Gate.

Having served in the army for some 30 years and leaving relatively unscathed, I walk to help those veterans and families that are not as fortunate as me.

It was a physically and emotionally tough challenge, but I'm doing it all for a great cause: ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the National Charity of the British Army. They support soldiers, veterans and their families when they need it most.

I've signed up for the Western Front again in 2023, but need to close this year's funding off.

If you can afford it and have a spare fiver or so, please donate to this fantastic charity. I'll be forever grateful!
