I am leading walks from St Peter's Assembly Rooms in Cecil Road, Hale on Saturday 8th December starting at 11 am to the Swan with Two Nicks in Dunham and back. The Assembly Rooms were a hospital in WW1. On Sunday 9th I will lead a walk from Wythenshawe Hospital to Wythenshawe Park and back starting outside the outpatients entrance at 11 am. In 2017 I overcame three Epileptic seizures, two heart attacks, Pneumonia, bacterial Meningitis and six deep seated infections and after nine days came home. I was left with an eye closed and a battered skull in 1982 after an 18 inch piece of rotten fencing went through my head, but my Army heart beats strongly and I have visited the unit in Birmingham where the amputees are treated. I want to make a difference for those less than fortunate than me so please join me on the walk, advertise it in your work place, make corporate donations as they will go straight to Walking with the Wounded and Help for Heroes and help those who give us freedom. I have been through medical hell and am registered blind and I am doing my bit so will you do yours? After being treated at 26 different hospitals every day is a gift so I hope that this Christmas you will help me give gifts to those who have suffered hell for us and their families.
I was blinded 36 years ago when I was 21 and never saw a Christmas tree. My career as an Army officer was over but I still had my life. I am a member of Blesma and have visited different veteran groups and the amputees at Birmingham. Friends will escort me to help give those less fortunate than me a chance this Christmas and many Christmases to come. I wand all at Hearts of Tigers want to make it Christmas for them every day.
