As always, I'll keep you posted and thanks again for the support.

Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to look at my fund raising page. 

As you may of already know, I have been in similar situations & struggles, post leaving the military along with veterans this charity and your donations support. Using their Head Start Program & employment help to name a few. 

This is my way of giving back to a charity that has helped me so much & continue to. With your help, encouragement & donations I hope to smash my goals and climb them hills. 

Once again thank you 

I'm supporting our wounded. Are you with me?

I've joined a team taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - to support those who served. We're taking on a big walking route around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded. 

My ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on. 

Why? We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military without any issue, but for a small minority it isn't so easy. 

Walking With The Wounded support the veterans who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what WWTW does.

Please help me and my team hit our £2k target. Every £675 can enable a veteran or their immediate family to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.
