Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][br][/p][p]For those of you who are somehow unaware, on February 19th 2018, me and my dad/wingman will be setting off on a bit of an adventure to raise money for Combat Stress.[/p][p]We will be driving to little town in Poland called Malbork, which is the location of the Prisoner of War camp in which our dad/grandad, 102473 Pte L.E. Palmer, RASC was kept prisoner for almost 5 years after being captured just outside Boulogne in May 1940. [/p][p]From Malbork, during the period of January to May 1945, Lol, as he was known by most people, was forced, along with thousands of other POW's to participate in a march west, eventully finishing somewhere near Berlin. This was done in one of the worst winters on record, with temperatures reaching -25c and very little in the way of food, drink or shelter being provided by their captors.[/p][p]The route Lol took has been worked out at about 760 miles, and it is this route I am planning on riding on my bike, supported by dad. You never know, he might even have a ride himself![/p][p]That's 760 miles in a Northern European winter, dragging all the kit I need behind me in a trailer. [/p][p]This ride is being done in memory of Lol and the other POW's who participated in the march, those who didn't make it home and the families left in Britain not knowing if their men were coming home, Lol's wife Vera being one of them.[/p]
