Yanto and Karen will be riding a tandem recumbent Bike from the Banbury Cross in Banbury to the Aldershot Military Cemetery where there will be a short memorial service at the Northern Ireland Memorial, Paul unveiled this in 2012.
Paul was a very close friend of ours and a valuable source of information and advice before and after my right leg below knee amputation in January 2013. He will be missed for his work with amputees and this ride is to raise money for BLESMA which he did so much for and The Para Charity (which we are both veterans) and The Pilgrim Bandits (charity set up by Ben Parkinson).
The ride will take place over the 30th/31st August 2013, arriving in Aldershot on the 31st August to remember the 34th Anniversary of Warrenpoint (27th Aug) where Paul was amongst those injured and 18 were killed.
Money raised will go to:
PILGRIM BANDITS (Ben Parkinson)
