He has now been discharged from Her Majesty’s Forces. Due to his disabilities Alister is in the process of purchasing a property in Scotland however, this property needs to be extensively adapted in order for his parents to continue carry out their duties as carers. Alistair’s parents have applied to the main charities and the MOD for the funding they require to complete the contract of adaption as per the specifications required.
They have been partially successful however because Alister is now a civilian Help For Hero’s have informed him that they are no longer in apposition to assist financially. He has been informed by the Royal British legion that because he is moving to Scotland they no longer have a responsibility towards his welfare. There is currently a shortfall in funding of £53,000. The builder will not complete the project until this money has been acquired. Beyond The Battlefield have undertaken an obligation to the McKinney family to find this money.
All donations to this fund large or small would be gratefully received.
