A GROUP of members from the Exchange Health Club in Bridgwater have formed a team to compete in the Taunton half marathon.

They will be running in aid of “Help for Heroes”, some of the team both male/female are ex-forces.

Light Infantry, Royal Green Jacket, Parachute Regiment, and we also have a mother who has a daughter in the Royal Navy.

The male runners will be pounding the route with rucksacks; it seemed a good idea at the time!

The ladies have been let off but there is a rumour some want to wear camouflage cream and run with some Royal Marines!

We know it will take us a lot longer than the other runners, but we hope that the people of Taunton will turn out and support us around the course.

Our hope is that the people of Taunton will give a thought to our injured servicemen/women and make a donation to “Help for Heroes”.

CLIVE BEST, Stanley Close, Bridgwater.
