Our Patron, James Wharton, In The Mail on Sunday

Hi all,

A great feature this weekend about our Patron, James Wharton, and his new book “out in the Army” which is also being serialised by the newspaper. This week he talks about how Prince Harry saved him from a homophobic attack during training together in Canada.

You can get a discounted copy of the book from the publisher, BiteBack Publishing, here http://www.bitebackpublishing.com/promotions using discount code THECRESCENT. Every order using this code will bring a donation to the Crescent, so it is a great way to help us, and get a thrilling read too.

Thanks as ever for your ongoing support, with your help we can keep our services available for those who need it so much.
