SAS hero and best selling author Andy McNab was the guest of honour at Formby Rotary Club’s fund raiser for wounded war heroes.

The Gulf War veteran turned author entertained a 200-strong audience with the story of his life, helping the Rotary Club raise £1,202 for Help for Heroes.

The glittering event, billed as an “Evening with Andy McNab”, took place in a marquee within the grounds of the Tree Tops Hotel on the evening of January 27.

Jeff Howard, Vice President of the Formby Rotary said: “It was a great evening and I would like to thank all those who supported the event and helped us to raise such a large sum of money for a very worthy cause.

“Thanks also to Tony Higginson of Pritchards Bookshop, who also helped us organise the event.”

The Sun’s Millies: “It’s so important to recognise the work everyone in services does.”

By Duncan Larcombe

PRINCE CHARLES yesterday launched this year’s Sun Military Awards alongside Armed Forces top brass and a host of showbiz and sport stars.
Charles and wife Camilla hosted a tea party at Clarence House for the 12 Millies judges, who have the near-impossible task of picking out the bravest of the brave from thousands of nominations.

Andy McNab: “Every year The Sun’s Military Awards become more and more important because there is more and more activity in the military. This year we have lost 101 of our men in Afghanistan and we, as a nation, now have the chance to honour them.”

The star-studded ceremony will be screened on ITV1 at 9pm next Friday, December 17.

Andy McNab, the SAS hero turned best-selling author, put his imagination to good use this weekend when, at a charity benefit to raise money for Street Child of Sierra Leone, he auctioned the opportunity to become a character in one of his books.

The winning bid came from the somewhat unlikely source of Frank Timis, the Romanian-born mining and oil multi-millionaire, who parted with a colossal £115,000 for the chance to see himself on the same pages as McNab’s main protagonist, Nick Stone.

With film plans in motion for the Nick Stone series, Timis, 47, may also find himself as a character on the silver screen. Mandrake does not doubt this little detail occurred to him as he was clinching the deal.

Chairman Cecil Duckworth OBE and his guests would like to invite you once again to his annual Chairman’s lunch that will this year take place on Friday, October 1 between 2pm and 6pm. We will have our very own Worcester Warriors first team stars and coaching staff in attendance where you will have the opportunity to mingle as well as dine with a Warrior.

This year we will be been joined by ‘Britain’s original SAS hero’ – Andy McNab.

McNab will be joining forces with Ian Smith from Rabjohns LLP in raising funds for the charity Ataxia UK. Ian will be walking from coast to coast in September for Ataxia with the route crossing the breadth of England, from St. Bees Head on the Irish Sea coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea.

Ataxia is the name given to a group of neurological disorders that affect balance, coordination, and speech. There are many different types of ataxia that can affect people in different ways. Ataxia is similar in some ways to MS and sufferers often used to be incorrectly misdiagnosed with MS. It is degenerative and those affected usually have to use a wheelchair. Around 10,000 adults in the UK have a type of ataxia and Ataxia UK is currently funding research to find out how many children have the condition – it’s thought there are several thousand.
Ataxia UK funds research projects to try to find treatments that can help ataxia, and ultimately to find a cure. The Charity also provides support to families affected by the disease.

For more information on Ian Smith’s walk visit www.iansmith.com

The Chairman’s Lunch will include:

* Three Course Meal – fine dining in the sumptuous surroundings of the Sixways Stadiums most exclusive Slick Stand Suites.
