IT’S Armed Forces Day on Saturday 24 June, 2017 and we’re joining thousands of other organisations across the country in showing our support for our troops.
Our Chair, Dr David Crichton, right, is pictured celebrating ahead of the event with Andy Wilson, the CCG’s Veterans’ Health Ambassador.
The Army supported David’s medical education through university and he went on to serve as a medical officer for the Parachute Regiment for several years after qualifying as a doctor.
Andy served for eight years with the Royal Anglian Regiment and in 1991 suffered a spine injury while parachuting. With physiotherapy he managed to continue his service career until 1998. As a result of other injuries he is now in a wheelchair but continues to provide valuable welfare support to local veterans.
