Why take part in the #100for100 Challange?

2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War, which led to the early formation of Blesma. In the immediate aftermath of World War I injured veterans came together to support one another through limb loss, sight loss and continue the spirt of camaraderie which helped them survive the appalling conditions, extreme danger and trauma of four years of trench warfare.

To mark this important anniversary, we are launching the 100for100 Challenge in which we will honour those who sacrificed their lives in this global conflict and, at the same time raise funds to support today’s veterans who are living every day with the challenges limb and sight loss brings.

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."

"If my chair breaks and I can't repair it, Blesma will get it done. I was in a bad place after my injury but Blesma have been there for me, by my side from day one."

Fundraise for Blesma and support our limbless veterans

Last year alone we supported over 3,000 limbless veterans

  • 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.
