Armed Forces Day 22 and SSAFA Fund
Armed Forces Day is the annual opportunity to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces, past and present, and the families that have supported them in turn.
This fund has been established for your to offer donations in support of the planned military-style physical training session or the alternative of making a small sacrifice and give up an indulgence such as:
• Your posh take away coffee from your favourite barista
• A pint in the local
• Taking your car to the local car wash
• That cheeky bottle of wine
• A takeaway meal
• A round of golf
• Or whatever your guilty pleasure is?
By donating you'll be supporting the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) who exist to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity. They help by providing direct support to individuals in need of physical or emotional care. Addiction, relationship breakdown, debt, homelessness, post-traumatic stress, depression and disability are all issues that can affect our members of our Armed Forces community. Many of these problems only become apparent when an individual has to leave their life in the Forces and join ‘Civvy Street’. SSAFA is committed to helping our brave men and women overcome these problems, and rebuild their lives.
