Fred Bear is the official Mascot of The Veterans Charity and is embarking on adventures all over the globe to promote The Veterans Charity and to meet lots of wonderful people who support our Veterans.


Fred's first adventure is a particularly special and very fitting one - skydiving with a Paratrooper!


This week, Fred travelled to California with Sgt Tom Blakey of The Parachute Regiment, to do some skydiving with the Silver Stars Parachute Display Team.


Fred, securely strapped to Sgt Blakey, completed his first jump yesterday and as you can see from the photos Tom captured, he loved every minute of it!


Huge thanks to Sgt Blakey for making Fred's first adventure such an amazing one and helping our intrepid little bear to get his 'wings'.
