On Sunday 25th May, our very own Flight Lieutenant Stuart Batty (Officer Commanding 859) took part in the Edinburgh Marathon running in aid of Help for Heroes.
"Many thanks to all those who sponsored me for running the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday. I survived the 26.2 miles in 4 hours 52 minutes and my legs are just starting to feel like they are mine again! The generosity of my sponsors has helped me to raise in excess of £600 for Help for Heroes and I am very grateful for the support."
