On the 8th-9th June 2019, I am taking part in The Cateran Yomp.  A 54-mile hike in 24 hours across rural Perthshire. It's a pretty insane prospect, and fortunatley I will not be doing it alone, but rather with a group of like-minded fools as part of Team Crom! (

We're hoping to raise about £1600 for the ABF, and your donation can make a realy difference to the lives of current and former service personnel and thier families

Last October I took part in the ABF's Frontline Walk, covering 100 miles of the battlefields in northern France. During that time I met with Bob Semple, one of those who's benefited from the ABF's assistance in the past. In 2014, Bob was kidnapped by Islamic terrorists. For 514 days Bob was held in solitary confinement in a dark cell shackled to a radiator. Occasionally he was taken into the desert and threated with being shot whilst being filmed to get him to beg for his life for propaganda purposes. In his cell all Bob could see was a crack of light coming in through the roof, and being a former Royal Engineer he used this to try and calculate his latitude and longitude. Meanwhile back in the UK Bob's wife was left trying to support three children, pay bills and stop their house from being repossessed, all whilst having no idea if she would ever see her husband again. The ABF was able to step in and help her cover the family's costs as they waited for news. Bob was finally released in August 2015, and spoke with more than a little emotion about his experiences during our walk. 

Your support will help people like Bob during some of the darkest moments of their lives. Thank you
