The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust has made a grant of £300,000 to support wounded, injured and sick Veterans and Service Personnel taking part in the Invictus UK Trials in Sheffield from 22nd to 26th July…
Delivered by Invictus UK, a partnership between Help for Heroes, the Ministry of Defence and The Royal British Legion, the unique event will see almost 400 wounded, injured and sick Veterans and Service Personnel take part in up to nine adaptive sports, as part of their ongoing recovery from life-changing injuries and illnesses.
The Trust makes grants that support the Armed Forces community and their grant to the Trials will benefit hundreds of wounded Veterans and Service Personnel who use sport as part of their recovery.
Melloney Poole, Chief Executive of the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust said: “We are delighted to make this important grant to support the recovery of Veterans and serving personnel through sport. Opportunities for Veterans to access a wide range of activities that can aid their recovery is vital. With the launch of the Positive Pathways Programme, these opportunities will increase, ensuring more Veterans benefit from improved mental health and wellbeing by getting out and active as part of a worthwhile project.”
