I can gladly say that I have been lucky enough to be invited to help raise funds to build a Memorial for my fellow Submariners to remember our fallen comrades. After thinking long and hard about this whilst on my journey to Ironman Cascais 2021, I feel it would be utterly selfish of me to not use my journey as a way to raise money to create this lasting legacy. Please dig deep an help me raise funds for this and be part of a truly memorable piece of history.
Working for the Royal Navy Submarine Service is much more than a job. It’s a demanding and dauntless lifestyle that asks a lot of the brave men and women who serve within it, and their families. Remembering and recognising the submariners who have lost their lives is one of the ways we can help families, friends, and shipmates of the fallen to find peace in the face of tragedy. Since 1945, 450 submariners have died while serving. And in the years before, between, and during the two World Wars, some 5,000 men made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But there is nowhere dedicated to honoring them, until now.
I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target in aid of The Submariner Memorial Appeal. Anything you can contribute towards helping me achieve my target will be massively appreciated.
