EVERY JOURNEY BEGINS WITH A SINGLE STEP
They say every journey starts with a single step, in our case it was fifty thousand steps............
It was towards the back end of 2018 that the Veteran Group's founder and managing director James Willcock first came up with the idea of a charity walk over the North Yorkshire Moors to raise not only some money for charity but also awareness for mental health issues and PTSD that members of our armed forces are dealing with.
After speaking to a few friends and colleagues James was pointed in the direction of John Beamson another service leaver who had set up his own company called Robustours.
Robustours specialise in managing the type of event that James was planning and it was after this first meeting with John that James knew that this was going to be more than just a single charity event and the idea and concept for the Veteran Group was starting to take shape.
The Veteran Group are now working working with other partners such as Middlesbrough Football Club and Middlesbrough college to not only deliver other charity events but also regionally based projects to not only help and support veterans but also raise awareness within the region of the issues that they are dealing with.
