Jake has raised funds for a number of important charities close to his heart over the years, including The Make a Wish Foundation, Help for Heroes, The Prince's Teaching Institute, InFusion100 and the CAIRN Trust amongst others.
Jake is particularly proud to have worked with Walking With The Wounded for over 5 years now. As a charity who's identity is connected with the military, adventure and developing people's skills - it it particularly close to Jake's Heart.
WWTW is a charity established to support the employment our wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, those vulnerable veterans disadvantaged by their service, enabling to achieve independence through employment.
WWTW offers assistance through their programmes to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in gaining new long term careers outside of the military. This includes providing support to homeless veterans and veterans in the Criminal Justice System.
The outcome? Sustainable employment, and independence for them and their families.
"What Jake is embarking on embodies the spirit and determination which is exemplified by the men and women we support. With Jake’s military background, he has first hand experience of those who we work with and we are delighted that he has chosen to use his expeditions to raise much needed funds for and awareness of WWTW."
"Jake has been inspired to support us having seen the necessary work which we do – supporting the most vulnerable ex-servicemen and women who have found the transition out of the military challenging, through support with employment, mental health well being and social integration.
We wish Jake the best of luck and we will be following him every step of the way up, and down."
