Those with a good memory may remember a few months back, at the end of May, when our news story centered around a fundraising walk, thought up and lead by our Managing Director Suzanne Lisle for Veterans In Crisis Sunderland (VICS). The walk consisted of our team of ladies who all took place on the 20k walk around the Northumberland Coast.
Our fantastic team, along with their generous families and friends rallied together to raise an impressive £600 during a charity walk. Suzanne is pictured below with Veterans Support Worker, Sam Neil and also Michael one of the Veterans volunteers.
The funds raised through the event will be utilized to provide crucial assistance and support to ex-service men, women, and their families, helping them navigate life after their military service.
We hope the walk will highlight the importance of offering ongoing support to ex-service personnel who face various challenges during their transition back to civilian life. They emphasized the need to address issues such as mental health, unemployment, housing, and reintegration, which can often prove overwhelming for veterans and their families.
Suzanne expressed her gratitude to all the participants, sponsors, and volunteers who contributed to the success of the charity walk. She stated, “We are proud to have played a role in supporting Veterans In Crisis Sunderland and raising awareness about the challenges faced by our veterans. The funds raised will go a long way in providing much-needed assistance and resources to those who have served our country selflessly.”
The support VICS offer includes mental health counseling, financial assistance, job training programs, housing support, team building activities and outreach initiatives tailored to the specific needs of veterans in the Sunderland area.
This successful charity walk organized by Ascendant has further strengthened our commitment to aiding veterans, and has cemented our reputation as a company deeply invested in the well-being of the community.
