30 Brave Lads

Thursday, 7 July 2011  |  Admin

Every night on the television news we learn about the bravery and stoicism of the young – often shockingly young – British soldiers & airmen serving in Afghanistan. It is impossible not to be impressed with the determination and spirit of our forces, and equally it is difficult not to be moved by the sight of returning personnel injured in the course of duty who remain just as stoical and determined, as they seek to rebuild their lives back in Britain.

Fund Raising for SSAFA

The achievements of our forces are partly a result of indestructible team bonds and loyalty; Becky Hudson, Yin Yang Skincare’s Head of Sales, has drawn to our attention the fund raising programme organised by Sam Page and 29 of his colleagues from B Flight, 63 Squadron, RAF Regiment. They are taking part in a fund raising event for The Soldiers, Sailors & Airman Families Association. Constrained government spending is not making life any easier for returning injured soldiers & airmen and this group of colleagues is determined to help out as best they can.

£3,000 Target!

The lads are each running a full marathon, carrying 30Ibs of kit: 30 Guys, 30 Marathons, Plus 30Ibs. Sam is running his marathon on the 10th July. They are aiming to raise £3,000 and Becky advises the team has only just under£1,000 to go! Yin Yang Skincare is donating a box of 6x 200ml bottles of our award winning Skin Cleanser with a retail value of £78 to support the fund raising event and we appeal to the visitors to our site to support these brave lads in this campaign to help provide desperately needed extra help for injured military personnel and their families.

A lot easier than running a marathon with 30lbs of weights on your back!
