Jack has today shown his support for the MG Rover Leg4Leg Charity Run. This will start at Lands End on 2nd October with an aim of finishing at John O'Groats on 5th October. The organisers are working with MG Rover Mobile Mechanics and MG Rover Clubs all over the UK to carry an emblem in convoy across the length of the country. They will be stopping at various places along the route and are urging all MG Rover & Blesma supporters to come and cheer them along! All details of routes and stopping points can be found by visiting the Facebook page – just search MG/Rover Leg4Leg. If you would like to donate, or sponsor any aspect of the event, please contact us by email on email@example.com or visit our Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/MGLeg4LegCharityRun/?utm_id=13
Jack said "this is an awesome effort by everyone who is taking part in the Leg4Leg run. They are putting in a huge effort to complete the journey from Lands End to John O'Groats and have got a theme that I am sure Rover fanatics and car lovers everywhere can get behind. I am delighted that they are supporting Blesma, a charity that do such fantastic work with our injured servicemen. I know that they have set a target of £1,000 but I hope that they raise much more than this.
Craig Meredith, Event Organiser said "We just wanted to do something to say thank you to the brave men and women who have given, and continue to give, so much for us. Anything we can do to help BLESMA make things better for these guys and their families is a challenge we will happily accept! With the help of MG Rover owners and clubs nationwide, we hope that the event catches people's imaginations and highlights just how important organisations like BLESMA are. They do fantastic work and we feel honoured to be representing them in this way."
Laura Hyde, Community and Fundraising Events Manager at Blesma says, "Jess and Craig have put so much effort into the organisation of this epic event. We are delighted that MG Rover Clubs all over the country have chosen to support Blesma. Every penny raised from this event will go towards supporting our injured service personnel through activities and welfare support. We honestly couldn't continue our work without the support of people like Craig and Jess and the MG Rover teams."
Blesma, The Limbless Veterans is the national charity for all limbless service men and women, their widows and dependants. It was formed in the years following the First World War and became a national charity in 1932.
