Inspirational land mine victim Chris Moon MBE is the guest speaker at next year’s annual Len Pick Memorial Evening in Bourne.

The event will be held at The Bourne Academy on January 29 and is promoted by the Len Pick Trust, a charity for the benefit of Bourne residents.

Former Army officer Chris is one of the few westerners to have survived kidnap in Cambodia by Khmer Rouge guerrillas. In 1995 in Mozambique he was blown up by a land mine, resulting in the loss of his lower right arm and leg.

Less than a year after leaving hospital he completed the London Marathon and subsequently many of the toughest ultra-marathons in the world to support disabled charities .

Tickets for the event will be on sale from December 11 and can be purchased from Stephen Knipe & Co, 1a Abbey Road, Bourne, priced £3.
