Quarter of the way there!!!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am Cpl Pritchard, I have just returned back from Helmand Province Afghanistan. Unfortunately of my best friends hasn't. Sgt Gareth Thursby was killed on 15th September 2012. He leaves his wife Louise and two children Joshua and Ruby. Sgt Gareth "The Bull" Thursby" was an inspirational soldier, professional and diligent to his job and a dedicated family man. Gareth was a True Yorkshire Warrior. Gareth's nickname was "The Bull", because of his determination and strength. With this in mind myself plus 9 others are entering the Bull Run in Pamplona, Spain in Gareth's memory. In entering the event we are raising money for the Army Benevolent Fund. The ABF helps families who have lost someone in Afghanistan, also soldiers that are injured. The ABF are a great charity, one which is close to many hearts within The 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment. We are raising the money to get us to Pamplona which in turn will aid us to Raise more money and awareness for the ABF. Please donate and help us to get Pamplona and pay trbiute to our fallen brother Gaz.

So please dig deep and donate now.
