CADETS in South Tyneside took on a gruelling challenge to help blind servicemen and women, including British soldiers who have lost their sight serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Members of the Sunderland and Hebburn Royal Marine and Sea Cadets – based at the TS Kelly unit headquarters, in Prince Consort Road, Hebburn – took part in a sponsored walk with a difference to boost St Dunstan’s, which helps service personnel blinded while serving their country.

The charity has centres in Sheffield and Brighton and it is planning a third one in Llandudno in north Wales.
