A group of veterans will be sleeping rough for two nights in a Suffolk town centre to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

Nicholas Cohen and other members of the veterans group Battlegroup Raydon will take part in the RBLI's The Great Tommy Sleepout, which raises awareness of homelessness amongst ex-servicemen and women, roughing it together for two nights at The Croft in Sudbury.

A fundraiser page has been set up ahead of the event and so far the team have raised more than £600 for the charity.

Mr Cohen, who also took part the 2023 event at The Croft, said: "Last year we only raised approximately £600 by the end of the fundraiser so this year is a bigger success." 

Battlegroup Raydon is based at the Grade-II listed site of Raydon airfield, which was built to be a USAAF Bomber base.

The group is aimed at those who served in the military to come together to restore military vehicles and get them back on the road, with some being taken to shows.

The group will camp out at The Croft in Sudbury from March 22 to 24.
