The Wigley Support Fund (WSF) was established in 2017 to support and help re-train injured, serving and veteran service people, equipping them with new skills for a new start.
The Wigley Group began supporting the armed forces in 2013 when the first of our now annual golf days was held in aid of the official Parachute Regiment charity, Support Our Paras. Since then over £100,000 has been raised.
The launch of the Wigley Support Fund initiative has enabled money raised to be more broadly allocated to help ex-service people from all regiments, providing support in all areas of their transition from military to civilian life; anything from physical and mental rehabilitation to further education and skills training.
Jaco van Gass, a former Paratrooper who overcame life-changing injuries on the front line and is now a champion para-cyclist and adventurer, is our company ambassador and a driving force behind WSF and its efforts.
The Wigley Support Fund is led by Robert Wigley, Chairman of the Executive Board of The Wigley Group and associated companies.
