MADE BY VETERANS

MAKE IT

The idea for the Made by Veterans project started as far back as 2011 on one of our long distance walking expeditions where we were camped next to a river in Scotland and were getting the evening meal on over an open fire using a Dutch Oven.

The veterans on the walk were given a carving tool and told to carve themselves a spoon for their meal. We observed the concentration on their faces and the laughs within the group was great to see and we knew by focusing on something it enabled them to engage with others and produce something they could use.

I became involved with VIA in 2010 after my life took a turn for the worse and was invited along to do some fundraising with them.  This helped me no end and in time my life got back on track.
