In 2010 Harry conceived a scheme called Go The Distance 4 - a scheme which would pair a severely injured soldier with a public school. The school would then offer practical support,fundraising, and most importantly friendship to that soldier for life. My son Ben was lucky to be chosen as the partner for Harry`s school, Cranleigh. Harry devoted all his free time, and his entire summer, to devising the scheme, forging links with military organisations who could help, organising a series of events, designing advertising and merchandising. Most importantly, he formed an incredible friendship with Ben, who could neither walk nor talk at that time. The year culminated with Harry and a group of boys from the school cycling from Inverness to Portsmouth to promote the scheme and raise money for Ben`s future support. Harry`s motivation has always been to ensure that those who live a secure and advantaged life realise that there are soldiers who pay a heavy price. Always sensitive and positive in his approach to Ben, Harry has enriched his life in so many ways. Harry is now working to spread the scheme, and many more schools are waiting in the wings for `their soldier` to be allocated. Many social and fundraising events are planned for the future, and Harry has offered us his gap year to assist by working as part of Ben`s care team. A very talented artist and sportsman, cheerful, resourceful and funny, Harry has already brought a torch into Ben`s life.
