    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.

    Story

    I served for 15 years with 3rd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment. My life was changed forever on Tuesday 13th October 2009, when I was blown up by a Taliban improvised explosive device (IED). As a result of the explosion I lost both legs and my right arm.

    It was a miracle to survive, but I did, and now I spend my time helping others. I'm acutely aware that for every injured soldier like me, there are many more who have their spirits crushed with despair as they face a lifetime of pain, disability and impairment. Even those who seem to make a full recovery may yet exhibit the true extent of their mental injuries.

    So I am proud to support Invisible Wounds, who work with ex-servicemen and women who need help battling mental health illnesses such as anxiety, stress, depression or PTSD.

    Unlike physical wounds, mental-ill health is an invisible injury. Untreated, its harm often lies latent and for many it can have a substantial negative impact on their day-to-day lives.

    Thank you for your support. Together, we can make a difference.
