My story

[p]Usually about now I'd be packing my tools and preparing to head across the continent to volunteer as a mechanic at the Race of Remembrance. Instead, this year I'll be undertaking a 50km hike around a Bavarian Alpine Lake, the Starnbergersee. [/p][p]In the summer the scenery is breath takingly beautiful. At this time of year it's cold, damp, dark and foggy! [/p][p]Please donate generously to Mission Motorsport - who's usual fundraising and engagement activities have been drastically impacted by the pandemic. [/p][p]https://www.missionmotorsport.org/[/p][p]“To aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations by providing opportunities through Motorsport and the Automotive Industry”[/p][p][b]2000+ Wounded, Injured or SICK (WIS) BENEFICIARIES[/b][/p][p][i]Have been engaged through the charity’s work since 2012. Over 6000 man days of varied and exciting sporting opportunities help to access those ‘harder to reach’ and provide an exceptional vocational assessment and developmental tool.[/i][/p][p][b]170+ JOB STARTS FOR WIS VETERANS[/b][/p][p][i]From big industry to small , 170 wounded MM beneficiaries have successfully accessed employment through the charity’s training and placement schemes. Over 2000 veterans have found work in total. Employment - full or part time - is an incredibly important part of a sustainable and constructive future for our veterans and their families.[/i][/p][p][b][gt]84% ARE STILL IN EMPLOYMENT[/b][/p][p][i]Despite circumstances that would prove a barrier to many, MM veterans continue to demonstrate that they are well suited to the automotive industry, and that their skills are both recognised and rewarded. MM alumni are happily filling important roles in Formula 1, Formula E, World Rally Championship teams as well as with leading automotive manufacturers.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]The Forces’ Motorsport Charity[/p]
