A Drink to get started

Thursday 21 March the Household Cavalry Museum host to a special presentation by the members of our CastleTrek team. We invited key stakeholders to hear us speak about our motivation and commitment to the challenge we have undertaken.

Martin Semple, our team’s leader, gave an overall summary of the CastleTrek mission before inviting the rest of the team members to introduce themselves and speak about why they were compelled to join. An opportunity was also given to representatives from both the Royal British Legion and the Household Cavalry Foundation to introduce their respective charities CastleTrek will be supporting. Finally, two ex-serving and one serving Cavalrymen gave an insight into how important the Household Cavalry Foundation’s help and support was, and continues to be, following the life-changing injuries they sustained in Afghanistan.

All of this drove home the significance of CastleTrek’s mission, and how important it is to us to meet our fundraising target.

Representatives from Jaguar Land Rover also attended, and were kind enough to lend out a Discovery for the evening to enable a photo opportunity on Horse Guards Parade. In another amazing gesture, they have loaned two of these Discoveries to us to use as support vehicles during the Trek in the summer.

The evening was a great success and allowed us to meet many people face-to-face for the first time. Thank you to everyone who attended, and thank you for your invaluable support.
