Over a month ago
Forces Reunited has donated to a number of charitable organisations over the years that support UK Armed Forces Veterans, from Veterans With Dogs, Flying For Freedom, Surf Action to Combat Stress.
In February 2018 Clever Digit Media representatives handed over a cheque for £4,700+ to three major charities that provide support to veteran’s and soldiers and their immediate families. The charities were:
ABF - The Soldiers Charity
Charity Number 1146420
The Army’s National Charity Giving lifetime support to serving and former soldiers and their families. Includes making grants to individuals and specialist charities that help ex-soldiers and their families.
RAF Benevolent Fund
Charity Number 1081009
The RAF’s leading welfare charity, providing practical, financial and personal lifetime support to all members of the RAF family whether serving or veterans and their families.
Royal Naval Benevolent Trust
Charity Number 206243
The RNBT was established under Royal Charter in 1922 to help those who are serving or have served as Warrant Officers and below in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines, and their dependents, in times of need and distress; the collective term for the RNBT’s beneficiaries is The RNBT Family.
We’re now very proud to support these very worthy charities.
Commenting on the donation, Southern Regional Fundraiser, Heather Kemp from Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, said:
“I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you and indeed members of Forces Reunited for their generous donations of £4,755 which were received by the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund recently. This is a fantastic sum and one which we are incredibly grateful to receive – thank you!
“As you may know the Fund continues to provide a welfare safety net to members of the RAF family in their time of need. As we receive no government funding, we rely solely on donations and fundraising efforts and this is a fine example of how this can be achieved”
Forces Reunited would like to thank its member’s which allowed us to donate to these charities from contributions made by YOU.
