CHAMPION A VETERAN


In 2022, Waterloo Uncovered will support 100 Veterans and Serving Military Personnel. 

We are looking for 100 supporters who will Champion a veteran this year and help us to change a life.


WHO IS A CHAMPION?


A Champion pledges to raise £500 towards supporting a veteran who is participating in our 2022 programmes. 

You have the entire year to reach your £500 target, and how you do it is up to you. You could organise a bake sale, host a pub quiz, undertake a sporting challenge, get sponsored for an adrenaline activity or simply write a cheque! 

The money you raise will go directly towards helping a veteran who needs our support this year. 

As a Champion, you will be invited to our annual Fundraising Event in November where we will celebrate your success. We will also keep you updated throughout the year about our programmes, our veterans, special events and other opportunities to get involved. 

A Champion doesn’t have to be a single individual. It can also be an organisation, business, school or community. Please contact k.scott@waterloouncovered.com for more information on how to make this work for you. 

If you are interested in supporting a veteran from a particular regiment, please get in touch with us so that we can make sure this happens.
