Made by Veterans (MBV)

Wee Billy MacLeod

Billy has been involved in every VIA walk and although he has not served himself has been an important part of the TEAM. Billy has walked 1,000’s of miles alongside the veterans we help and knows about every aspect of what VIA do.

Billy took on a new role in 2014 on the World War 1 – 100 walk as a Support Team Driver although when not driving also took part on the walk. Billy has been fundraising for VIA for 11 years now and is out most weekends raising funds to help those who suffer.

Billy runs the Veterans In Action Project called Made by Veterans and teaches veterans who get involved in the project how to design, print and embroider clothing.

Billy took a break from running Made by Veterans during 2019 where he took part on an overland expedition to the Pyrenees driving from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.
