On Sunday we were honoured to have Dr Johnson Beharry joining us to talk about his life story and all the work he is doing through his Foundation.
If you were not able to attend this event you can view the recording here.
Dr Johnson Beharry, VC COG really needs no introduction. A British Army soldier, born in Grenada, who on 18th March 2005 was awarded the Victoria Cross for valour in the British and Commonwealth armed forces, for saving members of his unit, the 1st Battalion Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, from ambushes on 1 May and again on 11th June 2004 at Al-Amarah, Iraq. He sustained serious head injuries in the latter engagement.
In addition to still serving in the army within the London District, he is now very active with his charitable foundation set up in 2014. The JBVC Foundation supports youths in getting away from gang culture and helps rehabilitate former offenders, helping with training and getting them into sustainable employment in the future. https://jbvc-foundation.org.uk.
