Please support our London-Edinburgh ride to raise money for Combat Stress and the Light Dragoons Colonel's Appeal.
For ease of administration all money raised through Just Giving will be paid to Combat Stress who will share the proceeds with the Light Dragoons Colonel's Appeal.
Between 25-28 March 2011 Ewen Cameron and Neil Cross will attempt to ride the 400 miles from London to Edinburgh. We aim to replicate the ride of Sir Robert Carey, who in 1603 took the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth I to her heir James VI of Scotland. His journey took three days. Much of the route that he took is now motorway so we will follow an alternative, longer route using bridleways and minor roads and aim to reach Edinburgh within four days. We will use a total of 160 horses provided by friends and supporters.
The money raised from your donations will go to Combat Stress for the care of veterans suffering from mental illness as a result of their operational service. It will also go to the Light Dragoons Colonel's Appeal. It wil give enduring support to Light Dragoons wounded on operations or in regimental service, to their families and to the families of those killed in the line of duty.
For further information about the Ride please see our website www.greatnorthride.co.uk.
