This year I have decided to do a Zipslide across the Clyde to support Poppy Scotland.

As most of you know, I am an Army Veteran, spending 23 years with the Royal Artillery.

Poppy Scotland provide support for current and former members of the Armed Forces as well as their families, with issues linked to their time during service as well as long after they have left the forces.

The donations they receive are used to provide life-changing support, from advice, to employment support, financial struggles, housing, health and mobility to name but a few.

Their support in recognition of their sacrifices and service, is holistic and bespoke.
