I established the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund as a means to support personnel and veterans living with life-changing physical and psychological trauma in memory of my brother, Captain David Seath, who died running the 2016 London Marathon.
As an Officer in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, David cared passionately about supporting the positive health and well-being of the men under his command as well as veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It was for these reasons alone that David chose to run the London Marathon in support of the charity, Help for Heroes. So far the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised over £273, 000 and supported over two-hundred and twenty beneficiaries rebuild their lives, who have used the financial grants to purchase specialist rehabilitation and sports therapy equipment, enable respite breaks and PTSD therapies as well as facilitate supported employment placements, training courses and the setting up of small businesses.
Once again, I wish to thank everyone for your incredible support, without it there would simply be no legacy.
