Mark was only 20 years old when he lost both legs, his thumb and little finger to an Improvised Explosive Device blast during operations in Afghanistan in 2010. Mark is now a keen member of KartForce; a team of serving and ex-serving injured troops that race in karting events around the country and abroad.
The team provides injured personnel with adrenalin-packed racing activities alongside those who have been through similar experiences. The Soldiers’ Charity supported Mark through his rehabilitation by providing funding that paid for household items, white goods and a computer when he moved into a new property with his partner.
We later provided a grant that paid for essential adaptations to the property.
