In memory of a True Hero, my brother, Cpl Lloyd Newell
As a tribute to him, myself, and at the moment 8 friends (John Middleton, Garf Stock, Craig Ford, Kieron Browne, Jono Twohey, Paul Cole, James Davison and Gaz Brook) have begun training to take part in and complete the Paras'10 P Coy Challenge. This is our diary. The event will take place 9th September 2012, we have 11 months to beast ourselves into shape, to take on one of the toughest endurance races there is, to do my brother proud!
Further to taking part in this challenge as a tribute to Lloydy, we will be raising money for three wonderful causes, The Para Charity, Help for Heroes and my darling nieces trust. Please take the time to visit our pages on this blog, and know that should you want to contribute, every donation is gratefully received.
Please visit to see how we're doing, watch our progress, and encourage us along our way. Our heartfelt thanks.
