OUR PURPOSE

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

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

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 annual Ski Weeks, wounded veterans have used the Skiing with Heroes programme to help transfom their lives.

Team 2016

Team 2013

Using two principal events per year – The Ski Week each March, and the 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.

Quotes

I can really hardly believe that I have skied. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

NG (A blind veteran)

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

KJ (Veteran)

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.”

We are not a huge organisation, just a team of volunteers with a couple of paid admin staff, so HUGE thanks to Freeola.com whose support desk has time and again got our website back on line when we have overfiddled and pressed the wrong button!  thanks also to Scooter Computer who help us with our computers, the networking and technical bits.

Also huge thanks to Bodo’s Schloss and the Wynegg Restaurant who are great SwH supporters and we are truly grateful.
