Whilst doing my races I like to raise money and awareness of charities. The Light Dragoons Colonel’s Appeal is a charity that is very close to my heart having served in the 13th/18th Royal Hussars (QMO) regiment for 10 years.

coaster-13th-18th-royal-hussarsThe aim of the Appeal is to give enduring support to Light Dragoons wounded on operations or in regimental service, to their families, and to the families of those killed on duty.

Any donation would be enormously helpful and would be greatly appreciated.

The Colonel’s Appeal Fund can make a huge difference, offsetting many of the costs imposed upon the individuals and families concerned.

All donations received will be spent directly on those who have suffered pain or loss.
