    On Sunday 26th July 2009, 07:55, listen to Martin Bell OBE broadcast an appeal on behalf of SSAFA Forces Help on BBC Radio 4

    On Christmas Eve 2007, whilst serving in Afghanistan, Royal Marine Mark Ormrod was critically injured in a landmine explosion. He lost both legs and his right arm.

    The programme will be repeated on the same day at 21:26 and on Thursday 30th July at 15:27 and available online by visiting


    Email everyone you know, week commencing 20th July and tell them about this appeal.
