RAF Benson personnel complete charity cycle ride

SERVICE personnel and staff at RAF Benson completed a 115-mile charity cycle ride.

The 40 Royal Navy and Royal Air Force personnel, engineers, support staff and aircrew from the base and RNAS Yeovilton took a day to reach the naval base in Somerset.

They have so far raised more than £4,700 for the SSAFA, Myeloma UK and RCDM, the military wing of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

They were inspired by a colleague who was urgently evacuated from Afghanistan in April 2013 after he was found to be suffering from multiple myeloma, a form of cancer.
