    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Andy Keeley is currently in training preparing himself for the Eden Project Marathon on the 16 October 2016. Andy has seen service in N. Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan and has now left the military. Veterans seeking support after they have left the forces is rising, certainly veterans that are seeking mental health support has steadily increased over the years and is set to rise exponentially over the coming years . Boots on the Ground was founded by two former serviceman, Jay and Keith. Keith served in Africa during the 80's and Jay was recently diagnosed with PTSD after leaving last year. Our aim is to support those struggling to adapt to life in the civilian world when they leave by offering adventure training programs, advice, life support, sign posting and more. Based in the New Forest we aim to offer programs in Hampshire, Dorset, Devon and sometimes overseas which is why we need your help to purchase a 17 seat mini bus.
