Veteran Chris Makes a Grand Gesture, Donates Boat to Aid Homeless Veterans

Latest news from our team at We R Blighty!

In a supremely generous act of solidarity, a veteran named Chris has emerged as a beacon of hope for homeless veterans. Chris recently donated a boat to We R Blighty, a move aimed at advancing our mission to provide housing solutions for our ex-service members in need.

Chris, understanding the plight of homeless veterans intimately, made the decision to donate his boat – a testament to the camaraderie and brotherhood that forms the backbone of military service. This gesture rings significant during these challenging times, marking a step forward in combating homelessness among our esteemed veterans.

The boat will serve as an unconventional, yet comforting home for veterans who find themselves without a roof over their heads. Besides offering a safe sanctuary, it symbolises a beacon of hope and a promise of a better tomorrow.

This donation underscores the significant impact that contributions like Chris’s can have on our mission. It’s a reminder of the power of collective action and the significant difference every helping hand can make.

At We R Blighty, we are grateful and deeply touched by this selfless act. Chris’s donation is a heartwarming reminder of the spirit of giving, marking a significant milestone in our journey.

This vessel is not merely a boat – it’s a symbol of resilience, a testament to the power of compassion, and a beacon illuminating the path to a future free from homelessness for our veterans.

As we continue our work at We R Blighty, we hope this gracious donation inspires others to consider how they might contribute. Whether it’s a boat, monetary aid, or volunteer time, every bit of assistance brings us one step closer to our shared vision – ensuring every veteran has a place they can call home.

Let us salute Chris for his kind-hearted gesture and take inspiration from his commitment in serving those who have served us all.


We’re aiming to raise £20,000 to finance the refurbishment of 3 boats which will become new homes for homeless veterans.
