We provide a lifetime of support to the wider Army Family

Story

As you most of you know by now my little brother Lloyd Newell, Lloydy was fatally wounded whilst on operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on 16th June 2011. Lloydy is my hero, and a hero and an inspiration to so many. A Husband and a Father to a beautiful daughter. He loved his job, and made the ultimate sacrifice doing it. His passing left an enormous hole in the life's and hearts of all who knew and loved him. He was a special man, a man who always went a little further, the best I've ever known.

This year I ran the Virgin Money London Marathon for the ABF The Soldiers' Charity and have been very fortunate to be offered a place in next years Virgin Money London Marathon once again by the ABF, a charity I'm very honoured and proud to run for and support. However, before the marathon I will be taking part in another Fan Dance (the WINTER Edition on 10th January 2015), and before that I will be taking on the infamous 'Point to Point' test march on 16th November of this year. All will be undertaken in aid of the ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

I can't thank you all enough for the support I have been shown so far, but please if you can, help me again to try and make a small difference. Please donate and celebrate a true hero, my little brother.
