Allied Forces Foundation Takes on Cateran Yomp

On 11-12 June a small team from the British Defence Staff will support the Allied Forces Foundation (AFF) annual Cateran Yomp, in Perthshire, Scotland.

The AFF team includes amputees, individuals who are blind and others battling post-traumatic stress disorder – all sustained in the line of duty. The team will compete in a 22-, 36.5- or a challenging 54-mile hike in just 24 hours across the Scottish Highlands to renew self-confidence, re-establish self-esteem, and provide a focus for recovery and rehabilitation.

To support the team’s fundraising efforts, visit FirstGiving. You can also follow events on Facebook and  Twitter.
