Take part in our annual BIG fundraising week and support our wounded veterans. 

Get involved with Blesma Week

This year our national week of fundraising and awareness raising is 5-11 June.

Every year we ask individuals and organisations to hold their own Blesma Week events to support our Limbless Veterans, from cycling to bake sales – there are so many ways you can get involved!

We could not carry out our vital work without the incredible support of our fundraisers who organise Blesma Week events in their homes, back gardens and work places up and down the country.

Matt's Story...

Matt Weston was just 20 when he lost three limbs to a bomb blast in Afghanistan. 

"All I remember is a flash, my ears ringing, and the sense of falling. I lost both my legs and my right arm below the elbow in the blast. My rehab has been long, slow and difficult. I was in intensive care for a while and was in hospital for three months, and I've just had my fiftieth operation."

Support us this Blesma Week

 

Last year alone we supported over 3,000 limbless veterans. Your support can provide:

  • Just £10 could help to pay for a dedicated Support Officer to visit an amputee like Matt and give him much needed emotional support.
  • Just £100 could help to pay for home adaptations that would help an amputee like Matt get back into their own home and live independently once again.
  • Just £150 would help pay for Blesma families to have a weekend away so amputees like Matt can spend some quality time with their partners, families, and loved ones.
