Hammersmith soldier raises cash for comrades

Hammersmith man Capt Ed Poynter, of the 2nd Battalion The Rifles, recently completed a six-month tour of Helmand province, where 40 comrades were killed or wounded and has come back on a dual mission - to raise much needed cash to support those who have come back from that place with horrendous injuries, and secondly to re-train as a school teacher.

I can only hope that one of our local schools benefit from this man's experience - in particular some of the schools that have kids who think they're big to join a local gang.

  1. Well done to him, possibly exchanging one battle ground for another! I will happily donate to him all my books from my PGCE - honestly! might save a few quid!
