August 2015: 3 Teams of injured troops compete in the British 24hr thanks to DDMT

  

Nice message and photo of Kartforce at the 24 hour last weekend.

"The British 24hr is the most demanding kart race on the UK’s kart racing calendar, and this year was no different." 

"Always very well subscribed, this year’s race welcomed 63 teams – 3 of which were made up of injured troops from KartForce." 

"Dave Player, Founder of KartForce said, “We’re enormously grateful for the grant we received from the DDMT.  Without it we would not have been able to enter these 12 injured lads in the pinnacle of British team endurance karting.  We were very proud to display the DDMT stickers on our karts.”"

"Martyn Compton (Household Cavalry) and Danny Holland (Welsh Guards) wanted to send a special message of thanks as it meant a lot to them that a fallen Guardsman had made it possible for them to take part in this race." 

 “We hope we did Dougie proud!”

DDMT: No question about it!

 

 

We would love to hear from you if you know of any soldier (whether current or past), family member or any project that might benefit from our help.
