Wigley Support Fund
The Wigley Support Fund (WSF) was established in 2017 to support and help re-train injured, serving and veteran soldiers, equipping them with new skills for a new start.
The Wigley Group has raised close to £100,000 for the official Parachute Regiment charity, Support Our Paras from its annual golf day held over six years since 2013.
The launch of the Wigley Support Fund initiative has enabled money raised to be specifically directed towards helping soldiers in need from all regiments to make the transition from military to civilian life.
The Wigley Group are currently in the process of gaining charitable status for WSF which will ultimately work alongside other organisations that help armed forces. WSF will provide support in all areas of their transition from military to civilian life in anything from physical and mental rehabilitation to further education and skills training.
Jaco van Gass, a former Paratrooper who overcame life-changing injuries on the frontline and is now a champion para-cyclist and adventurer, is our company ambassador and a driving force behind WSF and its efforts.
