The Directors’ Commando Challenge
This fresh event provides the opportunity for Business Leaders to test their resolve on the Royal Marines’ infamous Endurance and Assault Courses, the testing ground and rite of passage of Britain’s Commandos, an elite element of the UK Armed Forces.
HPD Managing Director Ruari Chisholm is a trustee and director of this inspiring charity and for this reason HPD have chosen to support Commando 999 in their endeavours to raise the support and money they need.
Commando 999 raises funds to support Royal Marines who need our help. The money raised goes to the greatest point of need. Formed originally by former Royal Marines in the police service, we have widened to take in all of the emergency services, and any former Commando who shares our esprit de corps and wants to give something back to ‘Royal’ in need.
Our Fund has provided morale boosting activities in order to increase the likelihood of survival in theatre for the Royal Marines and to sustain quality family life. Inevitably, much is used in support of the many bereaved families and over 150 physically wounded Royal Marines. We also know that the future holds many who will also suffer mentally. We alllow them to provide whatever support is necessary for the less fortunate members of the corps family who need their help.
