With the rapid spread of COVID-19, its wide ranging impact and severe disruption across societies globally, the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team will continue to place the health and wellbeing of our Athletes, their families and our valued supporters first.
Consequently, our Season’s Programme has been curtailed and our End of Season Dinner to be scheduled in London for June will unfortunately now not take place. This would have been an excellent opportunity to celebrate with you the continued journey of all our wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans , and to pay tribute to the dedication and skill of our army of volunteers – both serving and civilian.
The journey of every beneficiary, however defined, continues to inspire us all as does the manner of their accomplishments; typically understated, utterly focused and truly inspirational. In the absence of being able to share their stories in person with you, I would encourage you please to look at the stories we have captured this year;
We recognise that the Global Pandemic has created a need for urgent action by Government, Businesses and Communities. Furthermore that the shared efforts of all to combat this virus and recover from its effects will be a long term one. However, our mission to continue to help transform the lives of our current beneficiaries and those in the future will continue with the same level of rigour and commitment to the cause, albeit now within the context of the global recovery. To that end, I very much hope that we can continue the partnership with you that has helped create and define the Armed Forces Para Snowport Team, that transforms our Athlete’s lives, and creates a better life for them and their families for many years to come.
My sincere thanks and best wishes particularly during these testing times.
