Bert Hope, our Senior Buyer is taking part in the gruelling Cateran Yomp!
Bert says ”
What im asking for you to do, is have everyone would donate / sponsor, cry it what you will, £2, That’s right £2. Im not asking for hundreds of pounds from anyone every little helps. That’s not to say if you were prepared to donate a larger donation it would come in very handy. When I first considered this I was amazed at the lack of help our armed forces boys and girls get after they come back from tour. Bloody ridiculous if you ask me, but you haven’t so I won’t rant on about that.
Please see below, that’ll tell you more but the bases is, myself and a team of 4 ex-army sorts, will be walking from Blairgowrie-Spittal of Glenshee, past the Kirkton of Glenisla, through Bamff and then back to Blairgowrie. 54 glorious miles and to be done in 24hrs. Before this can be carried out I have 3 months of training to prepare and because im the most unfit man on earth, ive started training now so Im fit enough for the Training. By the time I do the Trek, I will have carried out over 150hrs of walking and done over 500 miles. https://secure.soldierscharity.org/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?EventID=44905&LangPref=en-CA&RegistrationID=512795#&panel1-8
