My Message

On the 8th-9th June 2019, I completed The Cateran Yomp.  A 54-mile hike in 24 hours across rural Perthshire and Angus.

It was tough going, even though it was cool and the weather was fairly kind, because it was very wet and muddy underfoot. However, the whole purpose is to raise vital funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Army's National Charity, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families.

This was a major event to celebrate my 70th birthday! Training began in January 2019, and it went really well this year - over 575 miles walked in about 190 hours. I achieved Silver (36 miles) last year, and I was determined to achieve Gold this year - 54 miles. The chassis, suspension and bodywork are all pretty knackered, and the exhaust is blowing, but the engine is still sound despite a tendency to overheat! The Courier reported that I was the oldest participant to complete the Yomp this year! 

Please can I ask you for your support? Anything at all would be be appreciated, certainly by me but more importantly by ABF The Soldier's Charity. Thank you so much.
