The William Aldridge Foundation

With the news of six British soldiers being killed after an explosion hit their armored vehicle in Afghanistan on Wednesday the 7th March 2012, which resulted in the biggest loss of life for British forces in Afghanistan since 2006. R.I.P

I thought it time to reflect on another reason for why I’m doing this blog and Project Afghan.

There are now many different Armed Forces charities or support trusts and networks available to servicemen and women on leaving the forces or because of serious injury sustained by active service. Too many to list, but I have always believed in and supported The William Aldridge Foundation, firstly because of my connections to Lucy the mother of William Aldridge, who’s relentless energy and enduring passion in being able to help and support wounded servicemen and women is truly second to none and secondly because I had the pleasure to serve with William himself during Op Herrick 10, Sangin, Afghanistan with the 2nd Battalion the Rifles in 2009 before he was tragically killed in action.

I myself, my wedding photography {20% discount for armed forces} and Project Afghan will continue to support The William Aldridge Foundation in all that we do and I hope that you will help me in supporting this worthwhile foundation by sharing this blog post or by donating to the details below.

About robgrimesphotography

Experienced and enthusiastic, I have a real passion for photography that I have gained over the years and that shines through in my pictures and my portfolio. I specialise in capturing those spontaneous moments that we otherwise could lose, either at your wedding or on a relaxed family shoot of your choice. I am always happy to talk about photography, so if you think I might be the right person to take your photographs then give me a ring to discuss your pictures, they are yours after all. Also a full time serving soldier in the Infantry in the British Army, but soon to be leaving the forces after Project Afghan finishes.
