Michael Bond, Founder of Rumbler has worked with British war veterans and their families to launch a new awareness campaign. “Remember Tommy” aims to raise awareness about the issues facing military veterans and their families throughout the country, and fill gaps in service and support to veterans.
After a conversation at the end of October 2018 with a local war veteran and discovering the tragic rate of suicide amongst young ex-service people, Michael was prompted to act and assemble the people for the campaign. With the support of Manchester-based Galleon Studios Michael and a group of volunteer veterans and veterans’ families have produced a new promotional film to raise public awareness.
The long term ideal of the campaign focuses on complementing existing services and helping fill gaps in service and support to veterans and their families. In conversations during this process Michael discovered that one vital need was for a signposting service to network and link all other groups and make it as easy as possible for those in need to reach the support available for them. Michael hopes that he will be able to give more support to veterans and help create new services on the back of the launch and success of the Rumbler.
