About Us

Welcome to the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, established in memory of Captain David Seath who tragically died running the 2016 London Marathon. The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised over £270,000 and provided over one-hundred and eighty financial grants to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans through the charity, Help for Heroes.

Our primary focus is to support those who have experienced considerable physical and psychological trauma in service of their country and, based on the kind words received from several beneficiaries, our work is making a huge difference in rebuilding their lives. The financial grants have been used by beneficiaries to purchase specialist rehabilitation equipment, enable respite breaks and PTSD therapy as well as facilitate supported employment placements and the setting up of businesses.

We have established an annual programme of fundraising events which includes a 5K memorial run/walk in Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline in April, a golf day at Fairmont St Andrews in August and a pub quiz at the Garvock House Hotel, Dunfermline in November. We support individuals take on a wide range of challenge events and work in partnership with schools, community groups and local business who wish to fundraise in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.

The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund works in partnership with British Heart Foundation Scotland to deliver free CPR instruction sessions. A cardiac arrest can take place anywhere and at any time and we hope to provide the skills and confidence to save lives in the future.
