May 2019: Five solid grants announced by Distribution Committee

The Trustees are delighted to announce the latest round of grants from the Distribution Committee.  Five awards to:

Waterloo Uncovered to enable a 9 month engagement with WIS participants including the two week excavation period; and

Kartforce to enable Le Mans kart championships race participation; also

Aerobility - to enable a long serving Marine, being medically discharged this summer, to complete his final 20 hours of flying, Help 4 Heroes having cut back; as well as

Purple Warriors - funding to cover the training and transport costs of Wounded, Injured and Sick veterans engage in Dragon Boats ...

and finally, since the sailing event with Supporting Wounded Veterans is no longer taking place, we have committed our pledge of £5,000 towards their proposal to send a British WIS to participate in the Canadian version of this series (having hosted a Canadian last year).

Enormous thanks to all fundraisers, supporters and friends who make these grants possible.

 

 

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.
