Story

ABF The Soldiers Charity and NHS Charities are continuing to work hard providing grants and services to those affected by the current COVID-19 crisis.

Starting on 01 May I will walk the distance from Helen's Tower in Clandeboye Estate, Co Down to the Ulster Memorial Tower, at the Somme battlefield, Thiepval Wood, a total distance of 690 miles.These locations are where the 36th Ulster Division trained and then fought in the opening days of the Battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916. I will walk approximately 11.5 miles a day, for 60 days. Each day I will post my virtual location onto the page. I am doing this to help ABF The Soldiers' Charity and NHS Charities.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the national charity of the British Army, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families when they are in need.

NHS Charities Together is the new trading name of The Association of NHS Charities, a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing NHS Charities..

All donations will be split equally between the two charities.
