COL Neale Moss will swap Apaches for a bike when he and his son cycle the length of the country for charity.
The commander of Wattisham Station and 15-year-old Adam set off at the end of July to cycle 950 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise cash for the Afghan Appeal Fund, which the colonel helped to start.
Col Moss, the AAF’s fund-raising director, said: “I was in Kabul in 2002 and I got to learn a lot about the poor condition of schools across the country.”
Since he and friends, who had shared his experience, began AAF in 2006 it has raised £300,000 to build five schools, with three more on the way. The charity is run by British soldiers’ families.
The pair plan to cycle 80 miles a day, stopping with friends. To donate visit http://www.justgiving.com/NealeandAdamMoss.
