A co-founder of Help for Heroes has appealed for the public to support today's planned Hero Ride.
Bryn Parry said:
We are asking anyone who can, to join us in London (today), line the route of Hero Ride, donate and demonstrate your dignified respect and long-term commitment to those who serve and risk all on our behalf.
To our great British public, we thank you sincerely for your wonderful, continued support.
To ride alongside a young man missing three limbs as he powers his handbike up yet another hill, in the pouring rain, determined to complete a 90-mile day is inspiration enough to understand why our support is so needed, so important and must endure."
