We help Royal Marines and their families in need. Royals who have been wounded in recent operations or fallen on hard times having left the corps.
We will help anyone, of any age, provided they have demonstrated Commando Spirit. We will provide comfort, assistance and friendship to support them, whilst engaging the wider family of military charities to provide the best outcome.
We have helped hundreds of Royal Marines through group projects and over 40 on an individual basis.
In the Summer of 2011, Commando 999 announced that through the years events, that we would be seeking to ‘donate’ a puppy in memorial to Marine Richie Hollington, sadly killed in Afghanistan and who was notoriously the 300th British death in that campaign. Geoff King and Ray Mead of Commando 999 were invited to Crufts to hand over a cheque of £20,000.00 for Hounds for Heroes.
In the company of Robin Hollington (Richie’s Father) and Dan Slark (Commando Log Regt) Richie’s Squaddie, they were introduced to ‘Yomper’ (6 months old) whom Commando999, through this donation, will help fund his extensive years of training. We hope to follow ‘Yomper Richie’s’ progress as his training progresses.
We do not know who will be the beneficiary but we remain confident that whoever, Military or Emergency Services, there will clearly be a lucky person to benefit from such a worthwhile cause and future life companion
We have bought many different prosthetics for many different serviceman including Mark Ormrod (shown here shaking the hand of the Prime Minister in Downing Street) and Pete Dunnning with whom we funded his bid to join Team GB at the Socchi Winter Olympics.
We have bought two specially adapted cars that have allowed our injured to transport themselves between appointments and treatments under their own steam.
