This year commemorates 100 years since the Royal British Legion was founded, as the charity continues to offer support to Armed Forces, veterans and their families.

Having raised almost £300 last year, Mr Henry is keen to support this important cause once again.

He said: “As a Royal Air Force veteran, I know first hand of the vital work done by the Royal British Legion in supporting the Armed Forces community.
