Charity Work

Since his injury in 2009, Andy has received so much support and encouragement, all of which has helped him to become the person he is today. He would like to publicly recognise and thank three charities in particular that are close to his heart, although they are not exclusive, and he has nothing but praise and thanks for all the charities and individuals that he has been introduced to and which have helped him so much.


Andy first became aware of this charity when he bumped into World Cup winner Andy Gommarsal, while fast roping off Twickenham Rugby Club’s roof into the stadium below. He told Andy about the great work this charity does in the inner cities and how it uses sport to engage with people whose lives may be going in the wrong direction, for whatever the reason.

Andy started working with the charity and was lucky enough to be offered the role of Patron, which he is extremely proud of and hopes his personal help can make a difference to others.



Founded by Surgeon Commander Anthony Lambert, the surgeon Andy chose to perform his amputation, the annual game has attracted thousands of supporters, all of whom generously donate gifts and funds to the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.  The fund was set up to provide a better quality of life to serving and retired Royal Marines and their families, and supporting this is naturally very important to Andy and his family. Many require the ongoing support, with families whose loved ones have been injured or killed benefiting from the ongoing financial support and understanding.

Over the last five years, the games have raised over £100,000 and the guest speaker chosen to outline his experience to rally support at the pre-match lunch at RN Stonehouse Barracks in Plymouth, was Mr Grant himself.



As a former Afghan veteran, Andy knows only too well the impact of war on individuals and families. Help for Heroes inspires and enables those who have sacrificed on our behalf – a cause that Andy has been committed to throughout his career and charitable work. Of the 220,560 individuals deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2014, it is estimated that 75,000 servicemen and women, and their families, may need support in the future. Andy has thrown his full support behind this amazing organisation.
