Story

This year my brother and I plan to abseil from the tallest building in Europe!  This is to be the launch of our campaign to raise as much money as we can for the Royal Marines.   Watch this space for an announcement regarding a Sportsman Dinner event...   Through our fundraising effort I want to domonstrate how much we all appreciate what the Royal Marines do for us

Last summer Lima Company of 42 Commando were in Helmand - for the next 7 months 40 Commando are there.  If you want to understand what this is like then look at Channel 5 and an amazing documentary by good friend Chris Terrill  http://www.channel5.com/shows/royal-marines-mission-afghanistan

Where does your money go? Here is one little example: Money was spent in October to support A Royal Marine who has been seriously ill in Hospital for the last 4 months.  The money supported his family with transport costs to between home and the hospital and a Laptop so that he can conduct online education courses whilst he is in hospital.  Many of us are lucky enough not to have to worry about something like transport costs to and from a hospital – doesn’t it make you stop and think!
