Racing with pride

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

I WOULD like to thank all the peo­ple who sup­ported the lo­cal Ter­ri­to­rial Army sol­diers at the re­cent Gi­vau­dan 10km race in Ash­ford. It is ex­tremely en­cour­ag­ing to re­ceive such en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port along the en­tire route of the race. We de­cided to raise money for Help for He­roes, the na­tional char­ity sup­port­ing ser­vice­men and women in­jured dur­ing op­er­a­tions in Iraq and Afghanistan. On en­ter­ing the sta­dium, the ap­plause and cheer­ing gave our team the boost we needed to com­plete the race with pride. In times like this, when the armed forces are busy on op­er­a­tions over­seas, it is such events and the re­cep­tion we get that makes our job worth­while. S. J. Sowerby, War­rant Of­fi­cer Class 2, se­nior per­ma­nent staff in­struc­tor, 133 Field Com­pany REME (V)/103 Bat­tal­ion REME (V) TA Cen­tre, Chart Road, Ash­ford.
