Army bomb-disposal charity opens
A new charity for Army bomb-disposal experts has been started in Didcot, Oxfordshire.
Felix Fund aims to raise £1m to help fund recovery breaks and improve on-base facilities.
The charity is based at the headquarters of 11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment of the Royal Logistical Corps, whose teams disarm as many as 40 lethal explosive devices a day in Afghanistan.
The fund is named after Felix, the cat with nine lives, which is the mascot of the bomb disposal unit.
