We were very proud to be recognised by the organisers of the Invictus Games as one of the 10 Armed Forces Charities representing the Community.
The games are took place 10 – 14 September at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Over 400 competitors from 14 nations took part in this international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.
The Games used the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.
The event, championed by Prince Harry, is a celebration of resilience and passion. The Games shone a spotlight on Armed Forces personnel and veterans who have put their lives on the line for their country demonstrating how they and their families are valued, respected and supported. For competitors, it will offer a memorable, inspiring and energising experience in their journey of recovery.
With special thanks to our sponsors (NetApp, Juniper Networks & Telindus) the Soldiering On team took the 8-Voices exhibition to the opening and closing ceremonies and were able to include a number of our previous Award winners.
