Armed Forces Para Snowsport Team (AFPST) Spirit of Challenge

This year, the AFPST is privileged to be supported by Leonardo in our fundraising efforts, a company which is amongst the top ten global players in Aerospace, Defence and Security and one of the biggest suppliers of Defence equipment to the UK MoD. Our inspirational athletes conducted a tour of UK Leonardo sites in April and May, which enthused and motivated employees to start planning and carrying out their own fundraising activities for the AFPST ‘Spirit of Challenge’ campaign.

Highlights from the Edinburgh team have included a team of 12 ‘Leonardo Fitbitters’ who collectively completed over 1.5 million steps in just 5 days, raising over £2,000 in the process. 24 Apprentices based at the Edinburgh site climbed 1,345 metres to reach the summit of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team raises £70,000 at Charity Auction

Each year the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST) works hard to fundraise to ensure that all of our fantastic athletes get the support they need. This year, we held a brilliant Snowball and Charity Auction, which saw performances from Laura Wright and the Band of the Scots Guards, as well as a powerful speech from Kate Philp, an Army veteran.

We would like to thank all those that supported the event, and those that contributed so generously to the Charity Auction. We raised £70,000 that evening and are so grateful to all those who attended. In particular our thanks goes to Allen & Overy who provided such a great venue.
