This patched was produced in partnership with Tim and Paul, friends of RBLI who have raised nearly £50,000, as well as vital awareness of PTSD in the process.
Former electrical engineer Paul’s world was turned upside-down when he was came into contact with live wires while renovating a hotel in 2005 – he only survived thanks to a quick-thinking apprentice who knocked him off his ladder.
The 56-year-old struggled to come to terms with the experience and found himself out-of-work before eventually being diagnosed with PTSD.
Paul moved from job to job but found his mental health and injuries were holding him back in life. Paul said:
“Then I found help with Royal British Legion Industries,” Paul added. “They organised for me to have counselling and supported me with getting back to work. Without doubt it’s the greatest decision I made following the accident.”
Paul found help from RBLI’s Maidstone office which provides support to veterans and civilians like Paul, before then taking part in an RBLI Wellbeing course run at the charity’s Aylesford head office last year. He now works at Audley Mote Retirement Village as a maintenance operative.
Paul joined forces with his friend Tim, and Tim's daughter Nicole to help raise awareness of PTSD and funds for the charity during its 2019 centenary year.
“As RBLI helped me so much – I was desperate to give something back,” Paul added.
