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.
They 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:
