On the 13th October 2018 Oliver, Jimmy, Pepe and Jose will race across Exmoor covering 30 miles through 12 checkpoints carrying 30lbs to raise money for the FirstLight Trust.
The opportunity to take part came at a FirstLight Trust event at the Cavalry and Guards Club last December when Oliver got challenged by the organiser to put a team in. Never to shy away from a challenge he simply marched across the room to Pepe who instantly agreed to join the team. Very quickly Jimmy and Jose got onboard to form a dynamic, Anglo-Spanish alliance. The Stand-to team.
We aim to raise £3,000 for FirstLight Trust, a small charity for veterans of the Emergency Services and Armed Force who suffer from mental health issues. Often personnel leaving the services struggle with the transition. FirstLight Trust is growing a local network of cafes and centres that support veterans and their families where it matters – in their community and in their homes.
