About the Trust

The Lt Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust seeks to assist persons who are currently serving or have served in the Armed Forces, and their dependants, and thereby improve the quality of life of soldiers who have given so much for their country.

Many soldiers returning from operation suffer from a multitude of problems, including injuries to their body, the loss of limbs, mental trauma including post traumatic stress, often triggered some time after the soldiers' return from operation and, in some cases, loss of employment due to jobs in the army being unavailable in the event of permanent disability. The problems endured are often ongoing and, in the majority of cases, remain with the soldiers for life.  Injuries sustained can have a life changing effect.

The funds raised by Dougie’s Trust will:

  • Promote and protect the health and circumstances of those that have been wounded or injured whilst serving in the Armed Forces, through the provision of facilities, equipment or services for their rehabilitation;
  • Provide grants for education and other beneficial activities for dependants; and
  • Provide grants to other charities who assist members of the Armed Forces and their dependants generally. 

If you wish to support the Trust in this important work please donate or hold an event/take part in an activity in aid of this cause.

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.
