In June, veteran and author Andy Reid, and Warrant Officer Class 2 Glen Hughes will be cycling 400 miles and kayaking 125 miles over 14 days in memory of six soldiers who were killed in an explosion of their Warrior armoured vehicle in Afghanistan in 2012. The Warrior Challenge will also be raising money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity – the National Charity of the British Army – and Style for Soldiers.
