When we at the Foundation started to think about what events might be within our scope, we weren’t really thinking of climbing Kilimanjaro. That was until we got talking to Stuart Holmes of Elite FX, whose incredible enthusiasm has given us the confidence to mount this incredible expedition with forty other hardy souls. Stuart is now very much part of the Foundation family, pitching in with all manner of matters relating to the progression of the Standing Tall Foundation. Not only has he given so much of his time freely, we are delighted to say that he has now made his company a Foundation Partner.
Andy Reid MBE said of the partnership:
‘It’s been fantastic working with Stuart for the last few months on our plans for Kilimanjaro and I am thrilled that Elite FX have made this commitment to the Standing Tall Foundation, moving forward.’
Stuart Holmes – CEO of Elite FX said:
‘Elite FX’s focus is on providing a service for elite sportspeople, businesses and sporting bodies who have overseas income from revenue, salary or sponsorship deals and need to repatriate that income to different countries all around the world. I have over 18 year’s extensive experience in finance and foreign exchange, but started Elite with my late wife Nicki in 2019.’
He added further:
‘When I met Andy Reid it was clear that we had incredible shared values when it came too tackling mental health challenges both in ex-servicemen and in the wider society and we have committed to working together to effect change in those areas moving forward under the Standing Tall Foundation.’
