My story

[p]I have decided to take on a true challenge of endurance, strength and stamina and no, this time, it’s not rowing! I’m running 26.2 miles in the London Marathon and I am so proud to be running in aid of Royal British Legion Industries. I am very keen to support military charities, and Royal British Legion Industries have been around for nearly 100 years getting Armed Forces personnel back into work. [/p][p][/p][p]Many of the people Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) support are ex-servicemen and women who have struggled after leaving the Forces and fallen out of work, the community and have lost their way and identity. Some Veterans struggle so much; with homelessness, substance abuse or emotional breakdown. I don’t believe they should be left to struggle alone![/p][p][/p][p]I was honoured to launch the #BeBraveWithMe campaign last September where I got to meet Veterans who took part in LifeWorks, RBLI’s employment course. They were inspirational people dealing bravely with pain, injuries and trauma that will be with them for life.  Even though they are no longer in the military they are still Veterans and we still need to look after them as a nation.[/p][p][/p][p]I am particularly motivated to support a charity giving practical support and are helping people to re-build their life around new employment.[/p][p][/p][p]I am aiming to raise £5,000 which will go a long way to put on more employability courses for Veterans around the UK and ensure that every Veteran gets the support they need once they have left the services.[/p][p][/p][p]Thank you very much for visiting my Virgin Money Giving page, I really appreciate all your encouragement and thank you for any donations.[/p]
