Gill is proud to join the Row2Recovery campaign as the Official Technical Clothing Supplier.
Row2Recovery is the brainchild of three former British Army commanders who trained together at Sandhurst and saw extensive combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ed Janvrin, Alex Mackenzie and Tony Harris witnessed friends and comrades sustain life-changing injuries, while Tony lost his left leg when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated under his vehicle in May 2009.
All three men were profoundly moved by their experiences and feel compelled to help the fallen. From this desire to help, Row2Recovery was born.
At the end of 2011, ex-captains Ed Janvrin and Alex Mackenzie and four injured servicemen will embark on an epic 3,000 mile voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat.
The campaign will shine a spotlight on the extraordinary achievements of people with disabilities, and challenge misconceptions about what life is like for an injured solider and their family. It also aims to inspire others with life-altering injuries to realise their potential.
Money raised will be distributed between three key military charities. Help for Heroes, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) and ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity.
Please support Row2Recovery’s exceptional mission to help wounded servicemen and women go beyond injury and achieve the extraordinary.
