Warfare in News


Posted on Wednesday 20th June

Benjamin Lambert, the brother of a Marine who recently served in Afghanistan, has almost reached the end of his challenge to complete 21 challenges in 21 months to raise £10,000 for Help For Heroes.

At the start of 21: 21, Ben said:

'I wanted to push myself physically and mentally to show support to the daily challenges that my brother would be facing – challenges that I will never be able to fully understand, but at least in challenging myself in my own way, I can show him the support he, and so many others, very much deserve.'

Ben's challenge is due to be completed in October 2012 when he will climb Cotapaxi, a 5897m volcano in Ecuador.

Ben is well on his way to achieving his fundraising target, and in recognition of his efforts, Ben will be carrying the Olympic Torch through his home town of Manchester on 23 June.
