We support medically-discharged veterans to give them independence


I am honoured to have the opportunity to support injured soldiers through the Skiing with Heroes charity, which provides these brave men and women with purpose, mental & physical rehabilitation and an opportunity to get back into mainstream life and employment.

The programme is designed to give the Veterans the chance to regain lost confidence and rebuild their fitness and strength, to help them re-enter the world, post-injury. The week of 'ski-habilitation' is only the start of a year-long programme of mentoring, pain management and the searching and securing of jobs and work placements.

Quotes from previous years' Veterans: 
“In every way possible, Skiing with Heroes has turned my life around”

"“I am so very, very grateful for all that you and your team did for me (and my wife). I am still smiling which is such a change for me. I am starting to feel happiness which has been absent for far too long now. I do believe that my recovery has begun.”

"A charity with a unique and intensely personal approach to rebuilding shattered lives”

How can your donation help?
Mentoring a Veteran typically costs £1,000 per year, and the Employment programme costs about £5,000 per Veteran. No donation is too small, but here’s a small example of how some donations help:

£25 - is a valuable contribution towards the Skiing With Heroes Veteran assistance costs.

£100 - pays for a significant chunk of a Veteran’s one-on-one mentoring. Helping a Veteran focus on a progressive, achievable life-plan is crucial. Such support can take many forms, from the building of business plans and instigating lifestyle routines, to seeking the right professional or medical advice.

£500 - helps to pay for the full assisting of a Veteran into sustainable employment. This entails everything the Veteran requires from job seeking, CV writing, interview guidance to the point of job-start and beyond.

All UK-taxpayers, please remember to tick the gift aid box, as this allows the charity to reclaim 20% tax suffered on your donation. For a £100 donation, this means the Charity receives £125 which significantly aids the programme.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page.
