Veterans in Action – our chosen charity for 2018

Our chosen charity for 2018 is Veterans In Action and we will be supporting them at the ACS Pacesetters Security Officer of Distinction Awards Lunch which will be held at Royal Windsor Racecourse on 23rd May 2018..

Veterans In Action (VIA) are an armed forces charity who help those who have suffered the effects of war or who have found the transition to civilian life difficult. VIA take a non-therapy approach and instead use the outdoors, adventurous activities, expeditions and centre based projects to help rebuild the confidence, self-esteem and self-belief of those who suffer.

Over the last 8 years VIA have walked a distance of 13,500 miles across the UK with over 500 veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and in September 2018 they will be taking on their largest challenge which is to take a group of veterans on an overland expedition in vehicles that have been built by the veterans driving from the UK to Greece and back, a journey of 7,000 miles passing through 14 different countries.
