Multiple companies listed in a military charity’s promotional material have denied that they were going to give money to veteran rehabilitation service.

Camp Valour (CV), had aimed to convert Hubberston Fort into a military-based residential camp for former servicemen and women, providing safe, secure accommodation to veterans, advice on benefits and housing, access to health services and employment skills, to ease them back into non-forces life.

In February The Milford Haven Port Authority, who own Hubberston Fort, entered into an agreement with CV allowing the company to use the fort for their project.

The scheme collapsed last month after concerns had been raised surrounding the company’s founder, which saw CV withdraw from social media.

In one piece of CV's promotional material they said: "The renovation of Fort Hubberston will be a huge undertaking and will be a costly process, however, we have a plan to reduce costs dramatically and to ensure that no extra financial burden is placed on the Pembrokeshire Community nor the Milford Haven Port Authority.

"Camp Valour currently has financial backing from CO-OPERATIVE FOODSTORES, Airbus and Rolls Royce however additional support would be sought."

Separate material issued by the company also mentioned they were seeking money from charities including The Heritage Lottery Fund, Help for Heroes, Royal British Legion, CADW, Architectural Heritage Fund, Army Benevolent Fund, Armed Forces Covenant and the Forces in Mind Trust.

The Milford Mercury was able to contact the Co-op, Airbus, Rolls Royce, The Heritage Lottery Fund, Help for Heroes, and the Forces in Mind Trust all of whom denied having approved funding for the scheme

An Airbus spokesman said they had heard of CV but had not confirmed any form of funding with them.

They said: “I’m very surprised to see the image [of their promotional material] because we have not confirmed any type of backing – financial or otherwise.

“We have had some brief discussions with them, which was they sent us a letter asking for funding, we made a call to find out a little more about it, and we were at the point of saying to them we can’t offer anything at the moment but we are aware of your activities and we will come back to you if we can support you.”

Help for Heroes and other charities said they had not heard of the company at all.

A Help for Heroes spokesman said: “Having checked with members of our directorate and our grants team, I can confirm we have not had any dealing with, nor funded in any way, this project.”

A representative for CV refused to comment.
