Tim is currently based at Royal Air Force Wittering in Cambridgeshire and is due to retire after 32 years' of Service this December.

Also in attendance was Tim's Squadron Commander, Squadron Leader Clare Jennings, Flight Commander, Flying Officer Nick Clark and Officer Commanding RAF Wittering, Group Captain Damian Alexander.
Along with collecting the cheque from Tim, this year Clive Huntingford is in training for the Blind Veterans UK 100k walk taking place on 21-22 June 2014! Places are still available and you can join Clive by applying for your place. This is the only 100k London to Brighton walk which you can do in support of blind veterans.
