Char­ity ef­fort is com­mend­able

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Comment -

IT is un­der­stand­able that Chris­tine Bon­ner has never for­got­ten her sol­dier son who lost his life while serv­ing in Afghanistan three years ago.

But it is to her enor­mous credit the loss of Dar­ren, a cor­po­ral who was killed in a land­mine ex­plo­sion, has spurred her on to help­ing oth­ers in­jured in con­flict.

Her All The 4s char­ity has proved ben­e­fi­cial to so many peo­ple al­ready, rais­ing more than £70,000 through char­ity walks.

Next month she will em­bark on a mam­moth walk with 12 men who served with Dar­ren in Afghanistan to raise even more,

Poignantly, the walk will start in Peter­bor­ough with a visit to the me­mo­rial to city two sol­diers who died in North Ire­land dur­ing the con­flict there.

We wish them well in the fundrais­ing ven­ture.
