My brother, Captain David Seath, tragically died running the 2016 London Marathon.
To date, over £250,000 has been generously donated in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, and we are so incredibly grateful to everyone who has donated money, organised or participated in fundraising activities across the country over the past six months. Without your generosity, support and dedication there would be no legacy...it's as simple as that. The ability to understand, react, and respond effectively to any given situation were integral to David's role as a Captain at 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery. In establishing The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, it was very important our response embodied the aforementioned attributes. Working in partnership with Help for Heroes, the funds are used to provide financial grants to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans as a means to rebuild their lives following physical and emotional trauma. The funds are distributed through Help for Heroes' Quick Reaction Fund (QRF), which means the funds can reach beneficiaries within 72 hours. So far, over 150 financial grants have been provided through the QRF, where beneficiaries have used the funds to purchase specialist equipment, facilitate essential home and car adaptations, fund respite breaks and initiate vocational and employment opportunities.
