The Front Line Challenge 2019 - Tony Hacon

Date: Wednesday February 13, 2019 at 2:03pm

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.

Who is it for?

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.

And who 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:
