PFA Coach Educator, Neil Bailey, has shown his support for serving member of the Coldstream Guards, Richard Perkins, in his attempt to break a world record for charity.
On June 18th, Richard began his run of 874 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats. He is aiming to break the current Guinness World Record of nine days and two hours, which will mean pounding the roads for up to 24 hours a day.
Richard hopes to raise £10,000 to create a foundation that will enable ex service personnel and their families to have a staycation in North Cornwall, with all money raised going towards a holiday home to be used by ex-military that have struggled to transition back into civilian life.
Neil Bailey joined Richard this morning to run a number of miles by his side, to show his support for the cause. Neil said: “I met Richard last week when delivering on the Pro Licence, held at The Castle Hotel in Windsor.
“When I heard about the challenge he was taking on, the cause he was running for and that the route took him through places where I grew up in Wigan, I had to join him and support him on the run.
I wish him well on the remaining miles of the run and any support along the way or donations to his cause will be welcome.”
