NOVEMBER 6-18th 2018
An exhibition of painting, poetry and film by medically discharged servicemen using the creative process to help heal and manage physical and psychological injury injury incurred serving their country in Afghanistan and recent violent conflict. 


In gratitude for the courage and sacrifice of our service men and women, Emma visits Headley Rehabilitation Centre for the injured to make complex trauma and neuro patients a complementary bespoke shirt in our luxury cottons. Also to those patients who need them, a hand carved ebony walking stick with a buffalo horn handle, and silver band engraved with their regiment and initials. They are extremely appreciative, taking great trouble to choose their fabrics and style of shirt, and there is always excitement when we arrive with the finished shirts and sticks. We have received many moving letters and emails of thanks, when of course they are the ones to be thanked. 

The popular Style for Soldiers Christmas Party is the largest reunion for injured service personnel, to bring together the men and women, whom Emma has met, and introduce their partners and families.

Patrons Lisa Armstrong, Fashion Editor of the Telegraph, Lieutenant General Sir George Norton KCVO CBE and Maria Witchell and Ambassadors David Gandy, Lieutenant Alex Horsfall, Shaun Stocker, Shehan Hettiaratchy and Matt Weston play a valuable role bringing work experience and job opportunities, and raising awareness.

In order to provide a smart uniform for interviews and new careers Style for Soldiers, with the significant support of Marks & Spencer and Russell & Bromley, also provides suits and shoes as well Emma Willis shirts and engraved ebony and silver walking sticks.

Therefore we would be grateful for your donations in order that we can continue to support these most deserving of young people into their new careers Donations can be made by sending a cheque payable to ‘Style for Soldiers’ and to us at Style for Soldiers, Bearland House, Longsmith Street, Gloucester, GL1 2HJ.
