The Ripple Pond are very excited to announce our partnership with Forces Wives Challenge for Armed Forces Day 2018.
The Forces Wives Challenge is a ‘network of wives and partners throughout the country who come together to seek adventure and create, organise and participate in their own challenges’.Often following the flag, and the career of the serving partner, means that family sacrifices need to be made. Understanding this as part of a community is integral to seeing one another through tougher times such as tours, separation, injury, postings and general instability of family life. It can sometimes be incredibly lonely or isolating. To highlight this strong community of wives and partners, the Forces Wives Challenge have set themselves a goal of climbing Pen-y-Fan, in the Brecon Beacons, on 30th June 2018, raising funds in support of The Ripple Pond and its members.
