Story

I am an athlete in the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST) – formerly the Combined Services Disabled Ski Team (CSDST) – a Service charity that exists to accelerate the recovery of wounded, injured or sick military personnel and veterans through the medium of performance alpine skiing, snowboarding and Nordic/biathlon. The competitive winter sports focus helps the disabled athletes regain their spirit of challenge and competition. You can read about the Team and it’s athletes on the website (www.afpst.co.uk) their achievements and aspirations. All of the athletes are exceptional young men and women who have given so much in the service of their country. Anything that you can do to help them achieve their aspirations will be extremely well received as the charity could not exist without the support of it’s amazing donors.

Since leaving the Royal Navy (after being diagnosed with the lifelong illnesses Fibromyalgia and M.E.), the team has helped me through very difficult times and has been instrumental in helping me regain confidence, self-belief, strength, mobility, and a sense that I can live a full and active life again. I have spent over a decade battling chronic pain and fatigue, and serious mobility issues. I quickly became isolated and this brought on severe anxiety and depression. The AFPST gave me an opportunity to be part of something, to challenge myself with the support of my team mates, to overcome/learn to manage my difficulties, and to enjoy a sense of achievement. Skiing brings me relief and freedom from the degree of pain, stiffness and fatigue that nornally holds me back. The AFPST has changed my life for the better in ways I never imagined so I want to raise funds for some of the equipment the team needs for me, and other athletes, to continue our recovery journeys.

Please help support this incredibie charity, and me, by giving as little or as much as you feel comfortable. Every penny counts so every donation is appreciated. Thank you in advance for your interest and your generosity.

    I was in the Royal Navy when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2009. By the time I met the AFPST I had been out of the Navy for 6 years and had been struggling physically and mentally for over a decade. The AFPST helped me get my life back.
