All my challenges are undertaken so that I can raise money for charitable causes. These are the charities that have either benefited from past events, or which will become beneficiaries of my planned future projects. Find out more about my connections with these charities:
A daring expedition to the South Pole to highlight how flying can help injured service personnel make a successful transition back into civilian life.
Give Them a Sporting Chance was started in 1990 to give people fun, life-changing experiences and an opportunity to see beyond themselves.
Founders of the meningitis movement in the UK – we exist to save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness and providing support.
Founded by Bob Paxman (former 22 SAS) in 2008 Talking2Minds’ ethos was ‘Veterans helping Veterans’. Since its foundation in 2008 and despite severe financial restraints, it has helped over 500 people put the pieces of their lives back together.
Toe in the Water uses competitive sailing to re-inspire profoundly and traumatically injured servicemen and women to see beyond their injuries, and perform to their limits regardless of physical condition.
The EOD Warrior Foundation honors fallen EOD warriors and provides assistance and support to wounded EOD warriors and the families of wounded and fallen EOD personnel in communities throughout the US.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund serves United States military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. Supporting these heroes helps repay the debt all Americans owe them for the sacrifices they have made in service to our nation. They are, in the words of our founder, the late Zachary Fisher, “our nation’s greatest national resource,” and they deserve all the help that our nation can provide. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in meeting this important national mission.
Veterans In Action (VIA) is a UK based charity specialising in the social reintegration of socially excluded HM Forces Veterans.
The charity was set up by Billy MacLeod, an ex-Royal Engineer who had to leave the services early because of an injury and found it difficult to adjust on leaving the services. Through his own experiences, Billy knows how difficult it can be walking through that camp gate for the last time into the often unknown world of civilian life.
