A blind veteran from Deeside has marched at the Cenotaph in London on Remembrance Sunday (12/11) with the charity Blind Veterans UK just two weeks after suffering a heart attack.
John Robinson, 51 and from Connah’s Quay, marched with more than 100 other blind veterans supported by Blind Veterans UK, the national charity for vision-impaired ex-Service men and women. He marched only one week after being discharged from hospital.
John, who has suffered a heart attack before, began to feel unwell and felt chest pains on Sunday 29 October.
