This year the Trust is privileged to have a new client – the RN Wounded Injured and Sick (WIS) Recovery Programme – generously funded by the RN&RM Charity.
Boleh delivered the first 5 day course for a WIS group earlier this Season with further bookings in September and October. This initial course with a crew of Submariners and Royal Marines was judged a ‘resounding success’ and enjoyed by all, including their overnight stay onboard her in Cowes. Picture shows Boleh ready to sail with Portsmouth Naval Base Commander, Jeremy Bailey (centre), WIS Manager, Angie Cheal (left), Boleh volunteers and the WIS crew embarked.
Commenting on his sail, Commodore Bailey said ‘Fantastic to join the WIS Programme briefly and learn so much about the Boleh Trust’s impressive work and how the Royal Navy delivers an active recovery programme for our most important asset – our people.’ WIS Manager, Johnny Morris from Faslane said ‘The lads got so much from their time on Boleh. They really bonded as a team, shared stories and experiences, and grew in confidence as the course progressed. We are all very grateful to the Boleh Trust and to our funders for this positive experience.’
