Land Rover enthusiasts raise £1,800 for Army fund
Members of Grantham land Rover Association have raised £1,800 for charity following an off-roading event at the Prince William of Gloucester barracks.
Members of the association presented a cheque last weekend to Lt Col Forsyth, Commanding Officer of the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, and Neil McCorquodale, Chairman of the Army Benvolent Fund.
The money was raised in April this year when the Land Rover Association held the off-roading event, using the driver training course at the barracks, in which 62 vehicles took part.
The ABF is the Army’s official and oldest charity, having been formed in 1944 with the aim of helping soldiers and their families adjust to life after they have left the army.
More information about the Land Rover Association’s future events can be found on either the ABF Charity Land Rover Run or Grantham Land Rover Association’s Facebook pages.
