Give Us Time were delighted to have been invited to the Bridge Leisure Conference this year.
Bridge Leisure are one of our most generous donors, donating 50 breaks for our military families last year and even more in 2019.
Give Us Time were given the exciting opportunity to speak at their conference. Our Chairman spoke about the role Give Us Time play in helping current and former military personnel. One of our longest serving Trustees also spoke about her experience hearing from military wives about what it’s like when their partners are away and their struggles when they come back and the family needs to adjust to a new routine.
Bridge Leisure also invited one of our military families to talk about their break at Hengar Manor, one of the parks of the Bridge Leisure group. Liam spoke about the positive impact the break had on his family and how it helped him during a difficult transition from military to civilian life.
Liam finished his speech by reading his moving poem “Soldiers Wife”, dedicated to his wife Tess, also in attendance, and inspired by the strength military spouses give their loved ones: steady rocks during stormy times.
The poem received a huge ovation from everyone in attendance.
Give Us Time is proud and honoured to have Bridge Leisure as one of its donors and hopes their generosity and commitment towards the armed forces community can inspire others to support the charity.
