Armed forces charity supported by Midlands logistics firm DK Fulfilment

Coventry-based e-commerce order fulfilment specialist, DK Fulfilment, is embarking on a series of fund-raising activities, to support armed forces personnel who have been affected by military service.

Kicking off next month by participating in the 10k Wolf Run, which goes across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud, DK Fulfilment hopes to eventually raise £20,000 for the Turn to Starboard charity.

“Service life places unique demands on military personnel – many of whom experience hostile situations that lead to mental health problems and psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety and, in some cases, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,” said Robin Buxton, DK Fulfilment’s European Marketing Manager.

Turn To Starboard uses Royal Yachting Association sailing courses to help participants with resettlement and reintegration issues they may be facing. The internationally recognised courses also provide beneficiaries with excellent career building opportunities.

Anyone wanting to show support, find out more, or sponsor the DK Fulfilment team is welcome to email eDelivery and we’ll pass your details on.
