Story

The reason that i am asking for this money is for my husband who is trying to set up a group around the Ashtead area for serving military and veterans reason being is my husband was in the British army for 18 years and been on numerous tours.

He left the army in 2014 due to unforseen circumstances. He found it extremely hard to settle back into civillian life and had all sorts of obstacles thrown at us. After 4 years of him left we have settled finally but along the way Sean has been diagonosed having PTSD and finds simple tasks hard sometimes.

He misses his mates in the army and the “brotherhood” as we have moved away from where he was based.

The reason for trying to set up this group is a few of his army friends have commited suicide due to PTSD and most recently one of his best friends took their own life and it has hit him hard.

We realise yes there is help out there for veterans but he wants to do something different to meet Serving and veterans in the area and meet for activities such as Go Ape, rock climbing etc or even just for a pint and a chat if they feel alone or miss the “brotherhood” so the money will go towards the fundraising side, activities and the general set up of this charity.
