The mission of the Veterans Hub Isle of Wight is clear. To relieve the hardship faced by veterans, currently serving personnel, and associated family and friends who have a direct connection with the Isle of Wight, either past or present, in respect of finance, trauma, isolation and well-being.
The Isle of Wight has a high number of Military Veterans living here and over the last few years after long friendly conversations with service personnel both past and present, their families and friends. We found that there was the need for a Veterans Community Hub on the Island.
The Veterans Hub Isle of Wight was initially the idea of veteran Dale Hillier, who served during the Falkland’s War. With the help of two friends who have served our country and community, along with considerable experience of running companies both on the island and the mainland, they felt that they had the perfect skillset to create a working community business.
We started a Go Fund Me Page to raise funds for the purchase of a building for The Veterans Hub Isle of Wight. This is because we don’t have a base hub to support veterans on the Isle of Wight.
This has become more of an issue especially with the Covid-19 Pandemic. When things get back to some form of normality, we will be able to help our own in their time of need. I am sure Captain Tom would agree being a fellow Veteran and a inspiration to our country.
To support us towards our financial goal of raising £300,000 towards our permanent hub building.
