It’s not about a ski holiday…

After the guns have fallen silent, and the din of battle quietened, the real fight begins.

Skiing With Heroes is a charity that helps wounded ex-Iraq and Afghanistan campaign soldiers back into employment through a ski-based support, mentoring, introduction and induction programme. Our work enables these Veterans to:

Recover their confidence
Re-enter employment
Reclaim their lives

Paralympic sport is a proven, potent medium for confidence-building, and skiing levels the odds between the ‘able’ and ‘disabled’ as few sports can. As has been shown to great effect during our inaugural 2013 and 2014 seasons, injured Veterans have used the Skiing with Heroes programme to help transfom their lives.

Using two principal events per year – The Ski Week each March, and the new-for-2015 Business Challenge in January – together with various one-off fund-raisers, we are rapidly expanding our ongoing help platforms. In doing so, Skiing With Heroes aims to provide lasting solutions for increasing numbers of Veterans.

You have allowed me to put some demons to bed and let me achieve a dream I NEVER thought might become a reality…

The physical benefit of these activities is clear… Sit‐Skiing has increased my core strength to such an extent that I can now do sit ups for the first time in 11 months.”

Wow what a lovely evening that was, so good to see our veterans and buddies representing all three ski weeks we have had. So nice to meet up with our friends, supporters and fundraisers.
And how good was it to share our news about the Pain Management Clinic, that they all have allowed us to make happen...

More coming on that in a later post.

Thank you all 250 of you for coming to the Cavalry and Guards club yesterday evening.
Photos coming later today...

Keith LambLeanne I haven’t really got time to do this at the moment; I don’t know what you’ve heard Leanne but I am a disabled former soldier who Skiing With Heroes has aided who suffers excruciating pain on a daily basis, but was fortunate enough to be selected to go on the ski trip to Klosters. As you can imagine places are at a premium and sought after, (maybe the dissenting voices are from those that weren’t fortunate to have been selected). It doesn’t stop there either; two years down the line and I’m still being helped by the charity, specifically two wonderful, civic minded individuals, Sally Ramsey Patrick, my mentor/advisor, who is, at this very moment climbing Mt Aconcagua n in Argentina raising funds to enable a further 20 disabled ex-serviceman the offer of help to get back into employment. Who is always at the end of the phone if I need anything. Another very generous and well meaning individual is John Pound; in the run up to Christmas you’ll find him giving out presents in children’s homes and charities around the country. As a former cabinet maker in the Royal Engineers he has commissioned me to make a replica of his home (Quebec House, the former Harbor Masters residence at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbor)., He hasn’t seen the completed article yet, so I can’t really display any pictures of it without him seeing it first. Furthermore, after being medically discharged from the army I studied at university and qualified as a physics/math teacher, but due to the meds I’m taking the powers that be won’t permit me go back into the classroom, so for the last couple of years I’ve been doing voluntary work in the oncology department at my local hospital, doing radiotherapy planning. The hospital would like me to be properly qualified, so next year I’m doing a more specific degree to the role and undertaking a medical physics degree, and I don’t doubt I will need some help then. Don’t listen to what people say Leanne, read up on it yourself and what the charity endeavors to do, you certainly won’t find any individual who the charity has actually offered help ‘bad mouthing’ it. Maybe you could even put yourself forward to become a ‘buddie’?

Keith LambMy comment above may not make sense, but I wrote this in response to an entry by a Leanne had ‘HEARD’ that Skiing With Heroes was not all it was cracked up to be, but she has obviously deleted that entry now!
