Trust Supports Para-olympic Goal

By fallenheroes on April 15, 2014 in News archive

Today the Fallen Heroes Trust was pleased to present Dion Taka with a cheque that would enable Dion to purchase all of the specialist air rifle shooting equipment he needs to be able to pursue his Para-Olympic dream. Dion and his wife Frances were overwhelmed. Dion said, “This means the world to me. This support will make my dream a reality, being able to compete at the next level. I only have one goal – Rio 2016.” Dion was wounded in Afghanistan. He has always been a sportsman but now his injuries preclude that. However he has always been a good shooter, so now his shooting allows him to realise there is still a lot he can do. The Trust provides our fallen soldiers and their families with a helping hand to live fulsome lives and achieve their aspirations. The Trust wishes Dion and his family every success as he pursues his Para-Olympic goal.
