Lord Richards of Herstmonceux
GCB, CBE, DSO, DL
Former Chief of The Defence Staff
“Richard Allen is a tough and thoughtful Royal Marine with a huge heart. I had the privilege of working with him in Sierra Leone.
What he is proposing to do will test even his rare reserves of commitment and courage but the cause is fantastic and hugely deserving.
I commend Richard to all of us who are so much more fortunate than the people his epic adventure will inspire and help.”
