We can announce that eight welfare grants were provided by the Captain David Seath Memorial through Help for Heroes during January 2018 which were awarded to five Army Veterans and three RAF veterans, who used the awards for the following:
• Travel to airport for a connecting flight to the Air Force games
• Specialist works tools
• Cycling equipment
• Payment of priority debts and providing food
• Vocational training
• Access to nursing support
• A camera for a university course
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has now raised £276,365 and provided two hundred and forty-one welfare grants to personnel and veterans of the British Armed Forces living with life-changing physical injuries and psychological trauma through Help for Heroes, the charity David was running for that tragic day.
David’s memorial fund is making a huge and lasting difference to its beneficiaries. Every donation made in his memory is used to support Help for Heroes’ Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) which provides specialist sports equipment, respite breaks and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy, as well as facilitating supported employment placements, training courses and the setting up of small businesses.
That’s why we decided to work with David’s chosen charity, Help for Heroes, and specifically to support their welfare grants programme. By doing so, we can be confident that every single donation to the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund really does help to rebuild lives.
We offer our sincere thanks to everyone who has donated money, organised and participated in fundraising events in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
Help us ensure that David’s legacy continues by donating today
