Weʼre raising £500 to ensure as many of The South Devon Branch Parachute Regimental Association (PRA) veterans visit Arnhem in 2019, for the 75th Anniversary.

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.
The South Devon Branch of the Parachute Regimental Association (PRA) consists of veterans that have served within the Airborne forces. Our President, who is one of our oldest members, is an Arnhem Veteran, and this is the reason I am asking for sponsorship.
My mission is to raise funds in an attempt to ensure that we may help as many of our members to visit Arnhem in 2019. This is especially poignant as it will be the 75th Anniversary of the Arnhem campaign where so many men and women lost their lives. This will most probably be the last “big” commemoration to honour those Civilian and Military personnel that sacrificed themselves to secure and protect freedom.
I will be competing in the GEOPARK TRIATHALON on the 8th July 2018. Adrian Henman has generously offered to donate a further £25 if I come 3rd, £50 for second place and £100 is I come first. No pressure then! Thank you for your support.
The Parachute Regimental Association was formed in 1983. Charity Registration Number: 1123942
