Team story

[p]On 4th June 2019, a group of 193 sponsored runners will set off from the site of [i]Tarrant Rushton Airfield[/i] in Dorset and make their way into the [i]New Forest[/i] and down to [i]Portsmouth[/i], covering 75 miles in under 24 hours. This is to mimic the route taken by Airborne Division glider pilots who carried out the first mission of D Day, enabling troops to capture 2 vital bridges, which secured the route from the Normandy beaches.[/p][p]This group of runners includes us, Spike's Heroes . Some of us did this same event 10 years ago on their 65th anniversary, when we were fitter and younger! See the event page here: https://www.veteranscharity.org.uk/rtop[/p][p]We will be doing a number of charity events this year and next to raise money for The Veteran Charity. [/p][p][b]We provide fast, direct support to Veterans facing hardship and distress.[/b][/p][p][b]The Veterans Charity was founded in March 2008 to support UK Veterans of all generations.[/b][/p][p][b]We supply immediate needs support for essential items including food shopping, clothing, household goods like kitchenware and single appliances as well as single items of furniture and even mobile phones to aid vital communication. [/b][/p][p][b]?[/b][/p][p]We are hoping to raise the money with fun activities.[/p][p]If you can make one that will be great,if you can't please donate for such a great cause. [/p]
