ARTICLE DATE: 18th June 2021
Well we've finally got around to adding some News for Somerset Solders as the launching of two new websites earlier in the year has taken a lot of time to get them to where we wanted them to be. We are pleased how both the Somerset Solders and Somerset Workwear websites have turned out and hope that the products are well represented and the shopping process is easy.
For this first article, we wanted to promote a truly worthy cause 'Care for Casualties'. You will find below a statement from Paul Thorner a Light Infantry Veteran and the veteran's fundraising challenge.
Dear Sir & Madam
My name is Paul Thorner and I am a Light Infantry Veteran. On the 17th of September 2021, I will be joining over 100 veterans and military service personnel, in taking part in a march along the Jurassic Coast, from Lulworth Cove to Lyme Regis to help raise funds and awareness for The Rifles Regiment – Care for Casualties and PTSD. Every year, we lose Brothers & Sisters who return from conflict, that struggle with their injuries and demons, and suffer from the dreaded PTSD that ends in them taking their life!
When you ask a veteran when they were last there, in many cases the answer would be “every night". The military train you to go to war, but no one trains you to come home!
I write to ask if you would be interested in supporting this great cause as a company. For a minimum sponsor of £50.00 we will carry a treasure chest, with the name of your company written on it along the Jurassic coastline. We will also have sponsor banners, that will advertise your company name on our military vehicles, that will be accompanying us along the route and at all our group photoshoots.
If you would like to sponsor this great cause. Please pledge a minimum of £50.00 to my just giving page link below, leaving your company name and I will ensure it is added to our list of sponsors.

I understand that times have been difficult for many companies this year and would like to take this opportunity in thanking you for your kind support. Your pledge will make a big difference for those that gave their all.
Paul, we wish you all the very best for the march this September. From all at Somerset Solders and Somerset Workwear
