We are delighted to have received word from one of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund #beneficiaries, Julian Allen, who has informed us that he has been selected to represent the United Kingdom at The Invictus Games Foundation 2020 #event in the Netherlands.
The Invictus Games is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated #veteranscompete in a series of adaptive sports. Over five hundred competitors, from nineteen nations, will compete in city of the Hague and we look forward to sharing news, concerning Julian’s experience.
Julian served in the 2nd Battalion Light Infantry, and injured his back in Germany which, at the time, appeared innocuous. However, following several tours in Northern Ireland the problem escalated in terms of severity. Having left the Army, Julian underwent surgery in June 2016 and a specialist bed was purchased to assist in his recovery through the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
The benefits of quality rest and recuperation were felt almost immediately as Julian progressed from a wheelchair to walking with a stick a short time after surgery. Four years on, Julian is preparing to compete in the Invictus Games, an incredible story of resilience and determination.
