Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Thursday 5th August 10 members of 4626 Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, RAF Reserves, will begin Marching the Ridgeway - an 87.5 mile hike along Britains oldest road in the hope of raising at least £10,000 for Help for Heroes and Troop Aid.

The aim is to walk from Ivinghoe Beacon, Bedfordshire, in the East to Overton Hill, Wiltshire, in the West in just under 53 hours, finaly finishing at the Squadrons home at RAF Lyneham by 3pm on Saturday 7th August.

4626 Squadron is a unit of medical Reservists who specialise in the Aeromedical Evacuation of casualties in areas such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Over the past few years many members of the Squadron have served, and will continue to serve, alongside their regular counterparts to ensure our service personel continue to receive the highest possible standard of medical care from point of wounding all the way home to the UK. Most members of the Squadron will work for the NHS on a full time basis as Doctors, Nurses or Paramedics although many will also work for other organisations and train and qualify with the RAF Reserves as a Medic - all will give up their valuable free time to be members of the Squadron and to deliver the quality of care our service men and women deserve.

We have seen at first hand the incredible work that Help For Heroes and Troop Aid are doing - the former is already well known and needs little explanation, the latter offers immediate help and support for the casualties we fly and is equally deserving of your sponsorship.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

So please dig deep and donate now.
