I will be running for Waterloo Uncovered who combine a world-class archaeology project at Waterloo with support for the military community. Each year they assemble an international team of archaeologists, soldiers & veterans to excavate and understand the remains of the 200 year old battle site. Archaeology offers opportunities to everyone no matter their ability or injury, so all participants learn new skills, build confidence, and open up to new possibilities.Through it, WU helps veterans with issues like welfare and transition, and transforms recovery into discovery.
The two week trip costs around £1500 per veteran participant. That covers the £100 a day for their travel, food, accommodation, welfare support and equipment. The wider project costs £180,000 a year; including the cost of excavation, the education, the outreach events and the charity running costs.
Please help me raise money for this excellent charity!
Many thanks in advance,
