Special Announcement

14th March 2018


After considerable thought and reflection, Mike Payne has decided to stand down as Director and Founder of Unload. His decision came 6 Years to the day since he launched the first Unload website.


This is a significant time for us all and we welcome and thank you in advance for your patience during this sensitive transition phase.


Without Mike’s original vision, Unload would not exist and the lives of many veterans and families may not have been touched in such a positive way. It’s been an amazing journey with much learning, growth and love for all of us.


Mike has expressed a desire to venture into something new and to spend more time with his family who have also loyally supported his journey in the creation of Unload.


Unload will continue to be served by its current board, made up of:


•Rob Knowles

•Chrissy Sawyer

•Fred Weaver

•Jo Diaz

•Ali Wooding


Please be assured 2018 is concurrently being planned with more outreach, social walks and gatherings, a new Quartermaster oh, and a motorbike called Gertrude who’s about to roar into life!


Mike, on behalf of the board and (we feel sure) all the Tribe members, we wish you the very best of dreams and visions that are yet to come. Good luck mate. X


We are a not-for-profit social enterprise, independent and confidential.


We are based in Nottinghamshire and mainly operate in the East Midlands.
