The Limbless Veterans helps wounded servicemen and women to rebuild their lives

LAST UPDATED AT 11:42 ON Fri 1 Feb 2013

­ The Limbless Veterans helps all wounded servicemen and women who have lost limbs, the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support. Our programmes allow our men, women and their families to face the challenges ahead with renewed confidence and self-belief. We believe in rehabilitation through sporting activities; there is life, new friendships and even sporting glory after amputation! Your support allows amputees to help other amputees and creates a fellowship of shared experiences; from our youngest member at 19 to our oldest at 99, BLESMA is with them for life.
