What is it?
The Frontline Walk is a
physical and emotional challenge to walk in the footsteps of those who served
and fought for our freedom in WW1. It is
100km over 3 days, from the Somme to Ypres.
The walk is run by the Army Benevolent Fund: The Soldiers’
Charity. The ABF gives a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans from the
British Army, and their immediate families. We make grants to individuals and
support a wide range of specialist charities that sustain the British Army
‘family’, both at home and around the world. The ABF takes pride in being
responsive, making a difference at a critical point in people’s lives. The ABF has
been doing this since 1944, working with veterans of every conflict, and we want
to continue to do so for the ‘long haul’ – supporting all future generations of
our soldiers and their dependants.
am I and can you help?
My name is Tony Hacon, and I served in the Gunners from 1976
to 2018, as a Regular and as a Reservist. This is part of my payback to help those in
need now and in the future. If you could help me to help them, I would be
really very grateful, and you can do so via this link: http://fundraising.soldierscharity.org/TonyHwalking
