My Story

In March 2018 I will be joining around 30 Veterans and a similar number of volunteer Ski Buddies and medically trained specialists, for a ski based induction and support week in the Swiss Alps. The trip is run by the UK based charity, Supporting Wounded Veterans (formerly known as “Skiing With Heros”).

The Ski Week is the start of the ongoing rehabilitation programme involving mentoring, pain management and the searching and securing of jobs and work placements. Every Veteran involved has sustained permanent life altering injuries - mostly from Afghanistan or Iraq. They range from severe physical injuries to combat stress (PTSD).

Supporting Wounded Veterans enables these Veterans to:
- Recover their confidence
- Re-enter employment
- Reclaim their lives

Since 2012, the charity has supported 158 veterans. They have over 100 applications each year but funding to support only 30.

I had set a personal target to raise £5,000. Having gone significantly over this, my new revised target it to reach £14,200 which is the cost of one full Veteran place on the Programme. It would be amazing to reach this significant amount, please help me by donating whatever you can.

In return for your donations, I will share some of the pictures from the week so you can see first-hand the power of your contribution.

Thank you, Emma x
