WHITEHILL Town Council has agreed to make a £1,000 donation to the Walking With The Wounded charity to support Brian Wood’s Ultimate Sacrifice Challenge.

Mr Wood, a Whitehill resident and Military Cross holder, ran 635 miles over 25 days to remember the 635 British armed forces personnel who died in the second Iraq war and the Afghanistan conflict.

Town council leader Cllr Andy Tree said: “The amount was proposed by Cllr Mike Steevens, citing the military connections to Bordon and the respect, support and affection shown towards Brian Wood by residents.”
