The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund provided a welfare grant to Kevin, through Help for Heroes, as a means to participate in the Mayfield Nursery Horticultural Project as part of his recovery pathway for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Mayfield Nursery Horticultural Project provides a place for people with mental health problems and learning disabilities to attend the nursery and develop skills and confidence to gain employment, volunteer, or make positive steps towards improving their mental health.
“I would like to thank the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund for their kindness and help in support of my recovery pathway. Sometimes my illness holds me back, but now I have something to look forward to as it gets me out of my home which, at times, feels like a prison.
“I’m so proud that David’s legacy has helped my recovery. Some people class me as a hero but David and his family are the real heroes. Thank you for everything, it means a lot to me that I might be able to start living again.”
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised £276,000 and provided over two-hundred and fifty 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.
