Darren Henry MP is training for his first Robin Hood Half Marathon and is raising funds for Broxtowe-based charity, Forces in the Community.
The Broxtowe MP, who is a Royal Air Force veteran is aiming to complete his first ever half marathon in aid of this great local charity. Forces in the Community provides support to veterans and their families with issues such as housing, benefits, mental health and employment.
Darren Henry MP commented: “Although I am not an excellent runner, I could not pass up the opportunity to raise money for this great cause by running the Robin Hood Half Marathon this September.”
“As a veteran myself, I understand the struggles that many former Armed Forces personnel face when transitioning to civilian life. Forces in the Community do an excellent job in supporting our Veteran community however they are in desperate need of funding to ensure they can continue to offer support where it is needed.”
Darren is currently training for the event by running between sites across Broxtowe. To launch his fundraising campaign, Darren ran from Forces in the Community’s Beeston Office to Chetwynd Barracks.
