Isle of Wight walk to raise money for charity

The Isle of Wight is set to hold a charity walk that is aiming to raise funds for the dependants of soldiers who have been either killed or injured in Afghanistan while serving with the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment.

A tiger-themed fancy dress trek will take place from Matalan car park in Newport and run to the Isle of Wight Zoo, Sandown, on either April 15th or 22nd.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the event has been organised by island resident Samantha Millard, whose partner Owen Horton is currently serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

She has already gained support from families and friends associated with members of the regiment in planning the walk on the Isle of Wight.

The Princess of Wales Royal Regiment have been helping to train a local police force in Afghanistan so that control of the country can be handed over in the coming months.
