Customer of the week 15.07.15

Over the past four years we have worked with some very exciting and inspirational organisations and our most recent client A Soldiers Journey was no exception.

A Soldiers Journey was founded by Sgt. Rick Clement an Infantry Platoon Sergeant who served in Afghanistan with the 1st Battalion the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment. The organisations mission is to provide support and assistance to all service men and women & their families, who have been affected by injury or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

UntitledThe organisation has helped veterans get accommodation, starter pack bedding, food and all other life essentials to really help individuals get the best start at getting employment and stability. They have also raised £15,000 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers an organisation that supports children who have lost parents in the Armed Forces. Funded The British Limbless Ex Servicemen’s Association with WIFI throughout their Blackpool care home. Raised £30,000 which was shared between BLESMA, The Soldiers Charity & SSAFA to provide vital equipment and this is to name just a few.

Founder Rick Clement talks about the day his life was thrown into turmoil on his website (click here) and states “It was on a routine foot patrol that I stepped on a pressure plate I.E.D. (Improvised explosive device). Thanks to the excellent training and quick thinking of my lads I was given emergency first aid and evacuated back to camp Bastion before being flown back to the UK. It was a miracle I even survived or rather a credit to all the medics from on the ground, the ones in the helicopter that picked me up and those back at camp Bastion.

Rick runs the website a-soldiers-journey.co.uk which not only gives lots of insight into the organisation but also allows people to make charitable donations and order great gifts from their on-line shop. This is where ukprintprice came in and provided printed mugs and champaign glasses for A Soldiers Journey to sell on-line.
