Help Mel up Pen Y Fan
Chevalier Mel Watts has very generously untaken to do a fundraising run for the Order. He’ll be running up Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in south Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. This is a very strenuous run, but to make things even more interesting – he’ll be doing it blindfolded!
“I have enlisted Al Lewis, a friend and colleague who will join me on the run over the top of Pen Y Fan, from Cwm Gwdi to Storey Arms,” says Mel. “But we will do it with an added twist. We aim to make our way over the mountain with myself being partially sighted by blindfold, and Al guiding me to the top and down other side. The blindfold will represent the hardship and burden of soldiers injured in conflict, whilst the help and guidance of my colleague will represent the support that is needed by those injured to continue to their own personal battle and journey when dealing with such the road to recovery.”
The run will take place on 18 March 2017 and the money raised will be divided between three of the services charities the Order supports – ABF – the Soldier’s Charity, The 3rd Bt Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment and the Green Berets.
