UK Veteran Charge, Promised Money Would Go to Veteran--Himself

Ex-soldier 'kept money raised for Help for Heroes' 
October 1, 2015

A former soldier asked for donations for endurance challenges but kept money raised for himself, a court has heard. Mike Buss, 41, from Highworth near Swindon, is accused of defrauding the charity Help for Heroes out of more than £23,000 between 2009 and 2011.

Swindon Crown Court heard before becoming an endurance athlete, Mr Buss spent 10 years in the Army and lectured at St Joseph's College in the town. Mr Buss denies one count of theft and one of fraud by false representation.

The ex-Green Jacket's fundraising activities took place mainly in and around Swindon and Highworth. They included running on a treadmill for 24 hours in Swindon's Brunel Centre, and running 100 marathons in 100 days. read more here
