A team of inspirational people have successfully completed the London West Tough Mudder UK event, who have raised an incredible £667.48 in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
The group was led by Charles McNeill Love, who studied at Aberdeen University with Captain David Seath, who said:
“David and I were at University together in Aberdeen and of course I have some incredibly fond memories. He is gone but certainly not forgotten.
“Tough Mudder 2017 was a great excuse for a group of friends to come together to laugh, cry, and get cold to raise money for a great cause, Help for Heroes, in the memory of Captain David Seath. Despite being bruised and battered, every member of our team completed the full course!
“The group now has the bug and wants to continue to challenge ourselves and raise money for Help for Heroes. This morning we all entered the ballot for the London Marathon 2018! Fingers crossed. Thank you to everyone who supported us and continues to raise money for this vitally important charity”.
The team’s incredible fundraising will support David’s legacy through The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, which provides financial support to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans through Help for Heroes.
A year on, over £270,000 has been raised by The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund and one hundred and seventy-five financial grants have been awarded to beneficiaries who have encountered physical and psychological trauma in service of their country.
Beneficiaries have used the funds to purchase specialist rehabilitation equipment, enable respite care, PTSD therapy and facilitate supported employment placements and the setting up of small businesses.
Gary Seath, Founder of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, said:
“We are extremely grateful to Charles and his team for taking on Tough Mudder UK, London West in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. David believed strongly in the pillars of teamwork, resilience and dedication as an Officer of 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery and Charles’ team have certainly epitomised these values in accomplishing their objective and raising a fantastic amount of money in support of David’s legacy.”
