This foundation has been set up in memory of Pte Richard Hunt. A brave 'Welsh Warrior' who was the 200th soldier to lose his life whist serving in Afghanistan. The charity was set up in September 2009 and aims to help the Welsh service personnel or those attached to the Welsh regiments and their families.
The purpose of this Charity is two fold, firstly to raise money which will enable us to provide grants for items such as specialised equipment to short breaks. These grants will be available to any Welsh service personnel and or their families or those who have served with or attached to a Welsh regiment. Grants will be given at the discretion of the Trustees.
Secondly to raise awareness of the forgotten service men and women injured physically and or mentally and to assist in anyway shape or form to expose the REAL cost of war and make sure the politicians are doing their jobs. Hazel Hunt has already set the ball rolling with her superb documentary "Why did my son have to die?" with the Tonight programme.
It is Hazels aim to make sure Richard did not die in vain and will continue to campaign to raise awareness in his and all the other fallen and injured service men and women's memories. So watch this space!
We are a non - political charity, we believe that anyone who volunteers to risk their life at war, deserves to be given the utmost respect and care, during and after their time serving our country.
This organisation is run by Richards Family and Friends who honour and support all our 'Welsh Warriors'
Thank you for your support.
