Holidays4Heroes & AquaCity help hero Liam Brentley

This day in 1940 British Prime Minister Winston Churchill gave an impassioned speech and praised the efforts of British serviceman who were fighting in World War 2, saying, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”

Seventy years on and the whole country still owes a massive debt to the armed forces fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. Train4TradeSkills is a proud supporter of Holidays4Heroes and is pleased to announce the recipient of the latest holiday is Liam Brentley. The 25 year old was shot through the head while serving with the Royal Marines in Afghanistan’s Helmand province and miracously survived and is currently recovering from his injuries.

In an extremely kind gesture from Holidays4Heroes co-ordinator Major Terry Butterworth, along with AquaCity founder and CEO Jan Telensky, have given the former Sheffield Eagles rugby player a free week-long holiday for Liam and his whole family at AquaCity, which has been named the world’s number one green resort for the second consecutive year.

AquaCity is a luxury, five-star resort in Slovakia that uses natural energy to power its hotels, water park, spas and all of the facilities on offer, whilst saving money through using green energy and conserving the environment.

We at Train4TradeSkills wish Liam a full and speedy recovery as he recovers from his injuries.
