EDUCATED at Stamford Park, MGS and Durham, I was brought up in Hale where I live and am part of the St Peter’s community.

My Army career, as an officer with the Royal Anglian Regiment, was finished when I was blinded, aged 21 in 1982.

I am walking, escorted, this Saturday and Sunday to raise money for Walking With the Wounded and Help for Heroes to help those who have suffered more than I have. All money donated on line goes straight to the two charities.

Thank you for your support
