Tackling the Jurassic Coast Challenge in memory of a bomb disposal hero

Felix

On the 11th December 2017, Christopher Legg, an Ammunition Technician in the Royal Logistic Corps was tragically killed in a road traffic accident while serving in Canada.

Chris’ family; wife, sister, father and uncle are tackling the Jurassic Coast challenge in July to raise money for Felix Fund in his memory.

Taking on the 42km walk from Weymouth to Bridport they hope to raise a substantial sum which will go towards helping Chris’ friends and colleagues, both still serving and those who have since left the military. You can support their efforts at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/teamcjl

Melanie Moughton, CEO of Felix Fund “It is heartwarming that following such tragic events the family are keen to commemorate Chris’ life in support of a charity he supported whilst still alive. We will endeavor to ensure his family get the help and support they require from Felix Fund.”
