The Grand Day Out sends it support to one of our most popular supporters - the indestructible Rick Clement - after the former '2 Lancs' Sergeant stepped out again today.
The former Infantry Platoon Sgt Rick Clement, who today took his challenge of walking to the next level at the Specialist Mobility Rehabilitation Centre in Preston. Rick, who lost both legs in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2010, is an inspiration to men and women who have suffered injuries in the course of serving their country and retains an incredible humility and gratitutde for having survived.
He has swum a mile at Salford Quays, rode Mountain Trikes and won a UK Magazine Industry 'Oscar' award for a Big Issue magazine cover as the subject of photographs taken by legendary rock singer Bryan Adams, whose father and grandfather both served in the British Army.
Rick is a legend to all of us and many across the UK, attached to the military and not, and we continue to support him, and his fantastic father, the rest of the family and friends, as he shows great courage in taking small steps forward with a smile on his face ... most of the time!
