Welcome to our little world. We are a small team of enthusiastic guys who are going to take two sets of bagpipes on a long walk from Windsor Castle to Edinburgh Castle to raise funds for the Household Cavalry Foundation and Royal British Legion.
This is not the trip of a lifetime but is one we will remember for one. It is not a trek through an exotic far-flung location. We are not looking to lose weight or climb a lofty peak. We are proud we have found a challenge that will test us both mentally and physically in a way that keeps costs as low as possible and all funds raised can go where we need them, to the charities we are supporting and in turn to our pals beyond them.
It has our team fired up and energised.
The route will take in the following locations:
- Windsor Castle
- Edinburgh Castle
We few, we happy few…
A small team of serving soldiers, ex-serving soldiers and civilians will depart from Windsor Castle on 29th July and walk to Edinburgh Castle, arriving 7th August 2019, to raise money for the Household Cavalry Foundation and Royal British Legion.
