Car Hire Gatwick Airport will be showing their support to the officers at the airport who are getting involved in the 24 hour challenge.
Two Gatwick Airport police officers are taking up the challenge of walking 100 kilometres (62 miles) in just 24 hours to improve the lives of ex-servicemen and women. The trek is starting in London and ending in Brighton, along with three other officers from elsewhere in Sussex and is in aid of Blind Veterans UK, which supports blind and visually impaired Armed Forces veterans.
The team leader Inspector Alan Shave, served in the army for six years, said “If you were in the Army they will help you, no matter how blindness is caused; it doesn’t have to be blindness through battle. Even if you haven’t been in the Army for 50 or 60 years, you can still go to them for help.”
Also in the group is PC Roxanne Carpenter, who has some good preparation behind her after conquering Mount Kilimanjaro three weeks ago. The walk will begin in Putney on June 21st and ends on June 22nd at the Blind Veterans UK centre in Ovingdean, Brighton.
