Veterans Throwing Club

Project by dougiejdurrant
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

We did it!

On 20th Feb 2018 we successfully raised £1,510 of £1,000 target with 48 supporters in 28 days

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.
