Logistics supply chain experts Fowler Welch, have joined forces with the charity Care after Combat.

The charity aims to help ex-service men and women to integrate back into civilian life, after they have left the military.

Their mission is to support Veterans with alcohol and substance misuse and the reduction of re-offending Veterans in the Criminal Justice System.

The opportunity to get involved came as part of an up and coming project with The Road Haulage Association and Microlise called ‘Road to Logistics’. This is aimed to address the national driver shortage, and will provide suitable Care after Combat Veterans with the opportunity for a ‘second chance’ within the industry.

Fowler Welch has added to the charity awareness campaign by branding 5 of its fleet trailers that will be traveling around the country. It is hoped many drivers will become aware of the charity from this campaign and donate to this worthy cause.

Care after Combat and celebrity Trustees Simon Weston CBE and Katherine Jenkins OBE, are passionately raising awareness and to help those who have given everything to their country, so they have a future outside of the military.

The charity are urging anyone who sees the trailers with a photo of Simon Weston on them, to take a photo and tweet it to @CareafterCombat with the hash tag #WheresSimon.
