Story

We have an amazing community of BOWRA Buddies that attend activities and inspire each other to push forward in their 'unrelenting pursuit of recovery'.

From time to time they ask us how they can give back, we have created this page for them to do so.

Here are some lovely testimonials from our Buddies:

"I feel integrated into the life I lived before my brain injury."

"It has opened my life to another start again I love the support I receive from all the Bowra guys"

"The BOWRA Foundation is amazing. Thanks to Mark I have done a lot of activities. The first one I was nervous on my own, I was paralysed left side I can walk slowly. I was not sure about the activity surfing, and staying away. Could i cope? It was daunting at first....my confidence has rizen and yes I can do things with the people I've met I consider are friends and may it continue. BOWRA Foundation means alot to me, thankyou, i was lucky I've met Mark and the BOWRA Foundation."

Mark was a decorated officer in the UK Special Forces. He had tested himself in some of the most arduous environments. Life was frantic and dangerous, but it was what he had joined up to do. In the space of a few minutes all that was about to change. Mark suffered a major stroke whilst driving back from London that would lead him to be hospitalised for over a year. Thankfully with the help of his family, friends and some very supportive charities including Help for Heroes, Mark is now back on his feet again with a greater determination to help others who may be similarly affected. In 2016 and 2017, Mark was selected to take part in the Invictus Games, winning medals in swimming. Since then, he as dedicated himself to helping others. Mark established the Bowra Foundation in 2019, to inspire resilience amongst people suffering from neurological disorders through practical help and physical challenges alongside members of the Armed Forces community.
