Welsh Guards Charity

We provide welfare and financial support to Welsh Guardsmen and families in need

Charity Registration No. 1152766


Dear friends,

All donations go to charity.

I intend to put myself through an unsatisfactory amount of mental and physical anguish to raise money for the Welsh Guards Charity. 

The Welsh Guards Charity raises money to support Guardsmen and their families that have suffered loss and hardship through service in Her Majesty's Welsh Guards. 

I have been incrediblity fortunate to serve with so many amazing people who have sacrificed much in the name of service, loyalty and comradeship. I hope to support all those who benefit from the Welsh Guards Charity, past, present and future. 

I have never run an Ultra Marathon before, let alone 6 back to back over the hottest desert on earth. The event covers 276km over six stages. Runners must be self-sufficient, carrying everything required to navigate, eat, drink, run, sleep and repeat for 7 days. 

I'm grateful for any support you are able to provide for the cause. I have set myself an ambitious fund raising total but in reality this a modest contribution to good cause. Every penny I raise will go towards supporting families of the Welsh Guardman who have suffered real distress and deserve all the support we can provide. 

Thank you for all your support!

I will keep you updated of my training and progress as I progress towards the event.
