CHARITY: Help for Heroes



Row2Recovery consists of two amputee soldiers who will row the grueling 3,000 miles across the Atlantic alongside two able-bodied comrades, to raise money for HELP FOR HEROES who work tirelessly to improve the lives of injured service personnel and their Families.


Cayle Royce was injured in May 2012 whilst serving as a sharpshooter with the Brigade Reconnaissance Force in Afghanistan after he stepped on an explosive device. This resulted in the amputation of both legs above the knee, facial scarring, multiple amputations to the fingers of his left hand and neck trauma. A keen outdoorsman and traveler before the injury, Royce is looking forward to getting back into the adventure game and proving what can be achieved despite sustaining life changing injuries.


Scott Blaney suffered an above the knee amputation and soft tissue injuries from a bomb whilst conducting operations in Afghanistan in 2007. Determined to live life to the full, Blaney successfully swam across the channel in 2009 and campaigns to raise the profile of injured service personnel.


Blaney and Royce will row with Captain James Kayll of the Light Dragoons and Captain Mark Jenkins, who serves with the Royal Army Medical Corps as a Physiotherapy Officer.


The campaign sets out to be a source of inspiration to the wounded and their families and to challenge what is possible in life whether wounded or not. Beyond Injury, Achieving the Extraordinary.
