On Saturday 31st Of July I organised and took part in a ‘Sleep out to Help out’ to raise money for two worthy charities. The PWRR benevolent fund (my regiment) and Scotty’s little soldiers, the latter help, mentor and support the children of deceased service personnel through to their early 20s. Over 30 veterans rough slept across the South of England to raise money for these important causes. If you would like to donate please email me through the contact page. Thank you!
