Each year, Waterloo Uncovered supports around 100 Veterans and Serving Military Personnel. 

We are looking for 100 supporters who will Champion a veteran and help us to change their lives.


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

There are several ways to become a champion:

  • Simply make a £500 donation via the online donation box on this page!
  • Write a £500 cheque made payable to Waterloo Uncovered at Office 102 Parkway House, Sheen Lane, London, SW14 8LS
  • Raise £500 through a sponsored challenge or fundraising activity! Sign up here so we can send you more information about how to kick off your fundraising adventure.

We would really like you to aim for a £500 target, but we understand that things are tough at the moment, so how much you raise and how you do it is up to you.

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

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 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.
