Money is being raised for Tusk Trust and Help for Heroes.
As part of their commitment to raise as much money as possible for their selected charities they have been looking for corporate sponsorship.
Witney company Meech International has been happy to help and there will be a press call and photo opportunity of the boys receiving their cheque. The boys will arrive in their “modified-for-conditions” Land Rover.
Opportunities will be available for interviews with the boys and Chris Francis, Managing Director of Meech. Tim Jackson, a Director of Tusk Trust will also be there to support the boys and will be available for interview.
