How you're helping

Your fundraising has a life-changing impact on the people we support, like Lyndon.

Twenty-six year old Lyndon served as a Combat Engineer in Afghanistan, where he sustained serious spinal injuries and had to be discharged from the Army.

In 2012 he enrolled on a rehabilitation course at The Royal British Legion-funded Battle Back Centre in Lilleshall, which helps injured servicemen and women to recover through a programme of adventure training and specialist sport.

During his time at Battle Back, Lyndon fell in love with adventure training, and after successfully graduating from the course, he found a job as an Outdoor Instructor. He's now a popular coach working at Battle Back, where he helps other veterans. Without the help of amazing people like you, Lyndon’s recovery would never have been possible.
