Donating guitars to Tedworth House, Mariner MD and founder Ken Achard said: “For the many years I served on the MIA council, I learned to recognise, appreciate and support numerous educational and therapy based projects with the playing of musical instruments at their heart. Being at Tedworth has been inspirational; seeing the dedication of the staff and the determination of the wounded. Many of them have lost two or even three limbs, yet their 'can do' spirit is an example for us all. "I look forward to seeing their new music room adding a creative, recreational and stimulating element to their lives. I salute the vision and drive of the H4H team. They deserve all the support they can get.”Mariner Guitars: 07710 842989
