Charlie here, just wanted to take a quick moment to highlight a good cause we’re supporting.

Last week, I met this remarkable man called Brian Wood at a breakfast meeting on Friday where he gave a speech about his life and experience, which was very moving. In his words:

Brian was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry in combat for courageous leadership in Iraq but was later summoned for unfound war crimes which eventually led to full vindication. His story is now the subject of a BBC2 film, Danny Boy, and he has been open about his struggles with PTSD and anxiety while also supporting Walking With The Wounded’s mental health programmes to help others.

Brian’s spent countless days and hours raising money for veterans and for those that have fallen in service, and you can read more about Brian Wood here.

His latest fund-raising challenge is running in the legendary MARATHON DES SABLES which is a notoriously tough 250 Km race through the ultra harsh Moroccan Sahara. Each participant must carry his/her own backpack containing food, sleeping gear and other material, and with extreme heat and a drop-out rate of 47%, the MDS will go to the history as one of the all-time toughest races on Earth.

If you’re interested in reading more, or supporting the cause take a look at Brian’s website here.

Thanks for reading!
