My story

[p]Over the last 24 months I have noticed more and more Ex-service personnel on the streets or just in a hard place in their lives. Whether this was in person or on the News, it became apparent that some unfortunate ex-service personnel genuinely struggle with life and decision making when they leave the forces. It got me thinking that firstly this could be me one day but also some people just need help integrating back in to society so that they have a fair shot at life post military.[/p][p]Last year I came across a charity called ‘Hire a Hero’ and after doing a bit of research I found that this charity was perfect for everything that I had been thinking about. Hire a Hero is a charity that supports service leavers and veterans through the transition from military into civilian life. For many service leavers civilian life can be a confusing, chaotic place; the charity, through its network of businesses, mentors and volunteers provides a consistent source of support to service leavers. [/p][p]So that’s it I’ve been telling myself for a while now that I will raise some money for this amazing charity. There has been a lot of delaying, but I’ve decided that at the end of my 6-month deployment in Cyprus I will be taking part in the [b]53 Km Akamas Blossom trail run around the Aphrodite’s hills.[/b][/p][p]Everyone that knows me will realise that running has never been my forte but it’s all for the cause. Anything that you could donate will be hugely appreciated to help this wonderful charity. All money raised will go towards, providing Career Coaches to assist service leavers and veterans, attending careers fairs, employment events, and engaging with service leavers and veterans across the UK.[/p][p][b]I hope you can all help me reach my £1,000 target.[/b][/p][p][br][/p]
