    Story

    Whilst raising awareness for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I felt that pushing out 22 press-ups and gathering social media "likes" was simply not enough.

    The aim is to raise enough to take 4 soldiers suffering with PTSD on holiday. I will personally take care of them from arrivals to departures. During this time, I will teach them how to dive and award each with a SSI - Scuba Schools International diving certificate - donated by my company.

    The entire emphasis is to thank our troops for their service & sacrifice, whilst showing them that life can be treasured.

    Soldiers don't own the war - they only follow orders, but they own the trauma during and long after.

    With support and assistance from Scuba Schools International, Mares, Siam Diving Enterprises and Help For Heroes, my company will also donate £2000 of diving and courses. I will forfeit my salary during the entire trip.

    All funds that are over and above will go directly to Help For Heroes.

    Any sponsors/donors who wish to remain anonymous, please let me know.

    Never alone. Stronger together.

      Hey everybody, Massive thanks to all of ye who have chipped in thus far. It's going real slow, so I've decided to extend the time as long as possible. I'm sure we'll get there over the winter! All of you have donated large amounts in my opinion and I am truly humbled by your support and messages. Makes this worthwhile for all involved. Thank you.
