Hannah Campbell Ex-Army corporal- who lost her left leg in a blast in Basra – is aiming to raise £1 million to help veterans who have hit hard times.
Ms Campbell said veterans sometimes face trauma, homelessness and poverty, as well as a need for retraining once they return to civilian life. With the help of the newly-launched Veterans’ Lottery, she hopes to secure funding for projects to help change the lives of those who served their country.
Ms Campbell, patron of the new Veterans’ Foundation, said: ‘July 1, 1916 was the heaviest loss in British Army history and those heroes gave everything to ensure our freedom. It is essential all of us remember that sacrifice. Lest we forget.
‘At the same time, we must also be aware of what’s happening today, and those veterans that are in desperate need for help and support. We can’t change the past, but can learn from it and shape the future.’
