A massive thank you to everyone who supported us in our sky-dive over the Gower for the Welsh Guards Afghan Appeal. It was an amazing experience and we are both SO grateful for your encouragement and your support of this great charity.

The Charity raises funds to help the families of Welsh Guardsmen who do not return and those who need continued support to adapt to their injuries sustained whilst serving in Afghanistan.

In the photo section you can see just a few pictures from our amazing day.  There's still time for people to donate if anyone feels able.

Dale Leach:

Drummer Dale Leach lost a leg when his vehicle hit a landmine in Afghanistan nearly three years ago. He was serving with the Welsh Guards, who are currently back in Afghanistan.

He was left with brain damage that affects his memory. He also suffered a broken back, fractured skull, collapsed lungs and a shattered eye socket. Dale, 25, had his left leg ­amputated above the knee and has a computerised limb.

Carol Fry:

Carol, a schoolteacher, discovered the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal whilst supporting The Welsh Guards Band charity CD in aid of the Appeal.

Hearing about those the has helped & meeting Dale made her want to support those who have sacrificed in service.

Carol says "To go off and fight in a land so far away, knowing you might not return or that your life could be changed beyond measure, is an amazing, selfless act. I want to say a thank you to all those brave enough to help protect people who cannot protect themselves".
