Team Duchess

The Frontline Walk 2021

We're fundraising for...

We've created this team because we want to raise money for ABF: The Soldiers Charity, The National Charity of the British Army and help the soldiers of yesterday, today and tomorrow... these people do and have done an awesome job in keeping us all safe and will continue to do so. By taking on the 2021 Frontline Walk challenge it is a truly fantastic way to keep the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the Great War alive. Please help us by sparing whatever you can by using the 'Donate' button... every penny really counts and goes to such a fantastic charity. The Frontline Walk challenge is a tough 100k trek, there will be aches, pains, blisters and tears, but with your support and the fun & laughter in Team Duchess it will get us through to finishing line at the Menin Gate. 


The more people that know about the Frontline Walk the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. 


Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to Team Duchess and even more to the charity. 

Thank you to our Sponsors
