March for veterans with 10-mile-walk this Saturday

A local military charity is holding a 10 mile walking challenge this Saturday 30 March and encouraging people to join them on the day.

Starting and finishing at the Recreation Ground in Martock, near Yeovil, at 10am, walkers will head for Ham Hill before making a refreshing pit stop at a local pub.

Those already signed up to take part include Blind Veterans UK beneficiary, Haydn Callow and his wife Jennifer, along with Haydn’s guide dog Webster. They will be joined by members of the local community keen to support Blind Veterans UK, as well as blind veterans supported by the charity.

Local residents can still register online until Wednesday 27 March by contacting patricia.darke@blindveterans.org.uk, or arriving at the Recreation Ground before 9.45am to sign up on the day.This walk is part of Blind Veterans UK’s March Is For Veterans which allows people to support the charity in various ways throughout the month of March.

Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-Service men and women of every generation rebuild their lives after sight loss. Since 1915, the charity has provided rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support to tens of thousands of blind veterans.

It currently supports more blind veterans than ever before in the charity’s history, but it knows there are many more who still need its support to rebuild their lives following their sight loss.
