Riding Home For Christmas

Corunna Company, 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment will soon be "riding home for Christmas", ready to spend some well-deserved time with their families.

The battalion, which has been supporting operations in Afghanistan for the past four months, will be "cycling" the 3,586 miles from Kabul to Catterick, North Yorkshire, on static exercise bikes.

The challenge will take place over a two-day period, with the team of 32 soldiers completing roughly 113 miles of the epic "journey" each.

And that's on top of their operational tasks in Kabul.

The venture is in aid of ABF The Soldiers' Charity - an organisation dedicated to providing servicemen, veterans and their families with support when they find themselves in need.

The team's goal is to raise £1 for each mile of their journey. So far they're on track to reach their target, having raised £1,631.93 of the hoped-for £3,586.
