Simon's Army Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

My name is Mrs Susan Beadel and I am the mother of Cpl Simon Beadel (RAF) who died, aged 25, whilst at home on Christmas leave from serving with the peacekeeping forces in Kosovo in 2009.  He died from a virus that he contracted whilst in Kosovo.  Since Simon’s death my husband and I have held various charity fund raising events to raise money and awareness for The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, which is a Charity very close to our hears and who were there for us during a very difficult time of our livest.  Simon was involved in many crazy stunts when fundraising for various Charities and we, as his parents, have picked up the baton to carry on the fund raising that he would have wished.  

Each year we try to do something different in order to maximise the amount we can raise.  This year we are taking 3 teams of 10, made up of both military and civilian friend of Simons to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.  The route covers 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. The peaks we will walk are Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres).

Please, if you have a few coppers to spare, the Royal Air Force desperately need funding.  They are not only there to help and support those who have lost loved ones but are there for the members and families of serving Royal Air Force Personnel, whether whether it is monetary and physical support.

I realise that times are very hard, especially in these uncertain times, but for the Royal Air Force to continue to help those in need, they require funding through charity donations such as yours.

Many thanks for your donation and, if you are unable to donate, then many thanks for taking the time to read this story.
