Veterans Throwing Club

The project is to raise much needed funds for a group of veterans to provide athletics equipment for the warrior and invictus games 2018 -19

£1,490 raised of £1,000 target 100 %
47 supporters 2 days left
This project will only be funded if at least £1,000 is pledged by 4:59pm 20th February 2018

Unfortunately due to the current problems in Northern Ireland its hard to get any type of funding to help veterans in their road to recovery, 

Sport recovery is a great way for veterans who have visible and non visible wounds to get back to some kind of normality again with the help of other veterans who have been there and who also understand their problems. 

The Invictus and Warrior games is a new goal that most veterans now train for which gives them a new focus in life rather than sitting in a darkened house thinking of ways to end their lives. 

Lagan Valley Steel kindly provided us with a throwing chair so that those with spinal injuries can now use as part of their training.  We now need help in raising much-needed funds so that we can purchase Discus, Shot Putts and straps for the chair and other sporting equipment to achieve our goal.

If you can help in any way then please do,  as every little helps. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
