A Rare and Special Man...

A Rare and Special Man…

 Alan Olding RM (16.05.43 – 18.07.16)

It is with great sadness that we announce our Patron and dearest friend Al Olding died peacefully, following a short battle with cancer, on Monday 18th July 2016.

He leaves behind his wife Mo, daughters Amber, Danielle and Saffron, grandchildren Amelia and Archie, and Team 65DN who will continue his vision to assist wounded veterans in their ‘Rehabilitation Through Adventure’.

Al was a rare and special man who showed a selfless commitment, passion and determination to help our wounded servicemen and women. He was a constant inspiration to us all and a source of great knowledge, guidance and support.

We have lost a true friend and legend, and we will strive to continue the vision and legacy that Al helped to create.

We are extremely grateful for the time that we had with Al and will cherish the memories of a man who touched the hearts of so many.

Our thoughts and prayers are now with his family at this sad and difficult time.
