Editor's Viewpoint: Tara's kindness for injured soldiers an example to us all

Editor's Viewpoint

Tara O'Rourke is a remarkable young woman. The 16-year-old launched a campaign to fund prosthetic limbs for injured soldiers.

She was moved by their plight, and the sacrifice they made for their country, while she was recovering in hospital from a serious horse riding accident that left her badly injured and requiring several operations. Now, through song and a video charting the conflicts soldiers have served in since the First World War, she hopes to raise £10,000.

This is a worthy cause and her determination to help others deserves to be supported. Often the heroes of the front line are forgotten when they return home.
