On a sunny Sunday morning in London, Major Peter Jackson and Captain John Hewett completed the 26.2-mile London Marathon, raising funds for veterans’ charities. The two officers from the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) participated in the marathon, and their efforts were supported by the CCF and the college.
The CCF thanked the college for allowing the CCF and the cadets to participate in the last three external events, including the fireworks parking, Fred Hughes Run, and St Albans Chess Congress. The fees collected from these events went towards the fundraising efforts of Peter and John, raising an impressive £2500.00 for two veterans’ charities: the Royal British Legion and the Soldier, Sailor, and Air Force Association.
The teamwork between Major Peter Jackson, Captain John Hewett, the CCF, and the college was fantastic, and it all went towards supporting two worthy charities that support veterans. The CCF and the college are proud to have been a part of this effort and hope to continue supporting veterans in the future.
The Royal British Legion provides support to current and former members of the British Armed Forces, and their families, while the Soldier, Sailor, and Air Force Association offers support to serving and former members of the British Armed Forces and their families. The money raised by Peter and John will go towards providing essential assistance to those in need.
Overall, the efforts of Major Peter Jackson, Captain John Hewett, the CCF, and the college demonstrate the power of teamwork and the importance of supporting veterans’ charities. Their dedication and hard work are admirable, and the impact of their efforts will be felt by those who need it most.
