Siblings awarded special commendations

Fund-raisers recognised after helping to raise more than �22,000 for the Royal Military Police Benevolent Fund.

Fund-raising siblings from Honiton have received commendations after raising more than �22,000 for the Royal Military Police Benevolent Fund.

Benjamin and Samantha Slater were awarded a commendation of the Provost Marshall for their fund-raising achievements by the chief officer of the Royal Military Police, Brigadier Forster-Knight OBE.

Benjamin was part of a team that cycled non-stop to John O’Groats last year - covering a distance of 1,000 miles.

The Royal Military Police Benevolent Fund assists serving and retired members of the military police, as well as their families.

His sister also held an army-themed party at the Royal British Legion Club in support of the bike ride.

Benjamin and Samantha would like to thank the people of Honiton for all their help and support.
