The Danny Gallivan Trust is a small military charity
that was formed in 2013 by Kerry Gallivan, the
daughter of Danny Gallivan. Danny served in the
Irish Guards, he then joined the Guards Independent
Parachute Company, serving his country in Aden,
Libya and Malaya.
After leaving the Army, Danny worked as a welder during which time he built one of the first “wheelbarrow” a remotely controlled robot desinged in 1972 for use by British Army bomb disposal operation, and they are considered to have saved the lives of hundreds. In Danny’s spare time his expertise in welding came in very useful to his friend James Hunt as his F1 cars always required welding!
Danny passed away in 2012, the charity has been set up in his name to help Veterans from all conflicts to get back on their feet after fallen on hard times.
