AIR and marine engineers from HMS Sultan took part in a race to Twickenham to raise cash for charity.

The 80-mile distance was completed by running laps of the Gosport naval base’s sport pitches, rowing and cycling.

They were raising money for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

The event coincides with the annual Army v Navy rugby match.

Event organiser Leading Physical Trainer David Howarth said: ‘The RNRMC Race to Twickenham was a great opportunity to get behind the charity.

‘Both teams in the Army v Navy rugby are sure to go all out, and our trainees have demonstrated the same will to win.’
