We’re very proud of Matt from our operations team who, with his ex-military wife, is competing for Purple Warriors in this weekend’s London Dragon Boat race.

This is more than just a boat race – it’s about inspiring recovery, supporting rehabilitation and generating a wider understanding and respect for those who serve and have served with HM Forces.

Purple Warriors is a family of serving and retired service personnel who embrace life despite impairments. They overcome struggles side by side and accomplish great things together through sport. Purple Warriors is fully supported by the Military’s ‘Battle Back’ programme.

You can read more about the Purple Warriors here: http://purplewarriors.org

The event is free and sure to be a great sight and fun day out. It takes place on Sunday 30thJune at London’s Regatta Centre, Royal Docks with the first race starting at 10am.

Good luck Purple Warriors!
