Household Cavalry Foundation Report 2015-2016


by the Director, Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Giles Stibbe OBE

s last years’ report for this Journal suggested it might be, 2016 has proved to be an opportunity for more generosity to our priority beneficiaries, and to consolidate available funds and staff. To start, I believe it’s vital to remind readers that the aim of the Household Cavalry Foundation (HCF), as the official charity for HCav, remains the same: to support all members of the Household Cavalry ‘family’: operational casualties, serving soldiers, veterans and their dependants. The HCF also supports the protection and development of the heritage that surrounds the history of our Regiments, and the welfare of retired horses. Most significantly, our operational casualties and their families, and our veterans received increased welfare support. HCF is now helping some to train for second careers as well as maintaining the core funding for specialist treatment for them and their

dependants. Readers will, I hope, understand why it’s wrong to reveal details of individual cases, but examples include: •

An Old Comrade who’s done years of charity fund-raising and now, sadly, finds himself suffering the after-effects of cancer. Wounded Care For Heroes, who look after him, say the result of six months’ care is that he looks better than he has done for at least two years.

A Paralympian won the Bronze medal in the World Bobsleigh Championships. He kept his head and won the bronze medal finishing just 0.07 seconds ahead of the American athlete. He also finished 5th in the IBSF World Para Bobsleigh Championships, and 3rd in the European Championships.

Our soldiers enjoying new sporting challenges: four Troopers won all their Polo matches; and all ranks enjoyed a charity steeplechase, and a Rugby tour of the USA.

Our Families have also asked for a small donation to help their kids’ Rugby initiative in Windsor Garrison. Their season culminates when our Veterans at the other end of the age spectrum play their annual match on St George’s Day.

Both HCR and HCMR received an average 30% funding increase to enhance the quality of life of our serving soldiers with reassuringly spectacular results. For example:
