We were proud to include a team in a go karting event organised to raise money for the Harley Street Skin Clinic’s Back on Track charity.
‘Nordens Wacky Racers’ took to the track to support the charity, which helps British soldiers disfigured in battle. Dr Aamer Khan and wife Lesley Reynolds run Harley Street Skin Clinic, and we’ve had the privilege of working with, and supporting them for several years. They set up the ‘Back on Track’ charity to raise £250,000 a year to fund the treatment of 10 injured soldiers, and this amount includes facial reconstruction and non-surgical procedures to reduce the impact of scars.
The charity aims to provide help that is not currently available on the NHS – or at Headley Court, the defence medical rehabilitation centre. Dr Khan’s work with Afghanistan veterans includes helping a man who lost his legs stepping on a bomb, and another who suffered serious burns when his armoured vehicle was hit by a Taliban missile. Both of these brave, inspirational men have benefited under Dr Khan’s care.
Dr Khan says: “There are a lot [of injured people] out there who don’t know they can get this help. Our charity covers any soldier who is fighting for the British Army and gets injured in action. We also help them get on track with hobbies. Soldiers are active people who love doing things. When they are injured they can’t get back into hobbies because there’s a cost attached to adaptations.”
