Please show your support for Coldstream Guards’ march

SIR – I visited the Coldstream Guards at their stopover in Hitchin on their epic march (reported in the WHT) from Coldstream to London.

The contingent of 50 had just marched from Milton Keynes and, with two stages to go, were in very good shape.

Many of the young soldiers had only recently finished basic training and were clearly ‘up for’ this unique event to mark an important episode in the history of their regiment and the country.

Having started on January 6, when the recent bad weather was at its worst, they certainly had not had an easy run.

As well as marking an historical event, the soldiers are raising money for ‘The Soldiers Charity’, the Army Benevolent Fund.

The fund is vital in providing support for soldiers, ex-soldiers and their families in times of need and the huge effort these young men have put in on their 400-mile trek shows that they are not prepared to sit back and let others do the fundraising for their benevolent fund.

Could I urge your readers to show their appreciation of this and be generous in their support by donating to the ABF via www.justgiving.com/coldstreammarch
