PC Matthew O'Neill set to raise funds for injured troops

Following his tour of duty in Afghanistan with the Royal Air Force Reserves, PC Matthew O'Neill has started his own campaign to raise money for injured service personnel.
"The money will go towards soldiers who are unable to work because they were injured or wounded, or suffer from mental health issues because of what they went through. I believe we all have a responsibility to ensure that those members of the armed forces who have served our country are recognised for what they have done and are able to receive the help and support that they deserve."
Early next year he will take part in a 54-mile "ultra-marathon" along the banks of the River Thames in London to raise money for the Royal British Legion. Anyone wishing to make a donation can visit
