The week has ended with a bang! I’ve had a great afternoon watching the #theroastbeefclub raise a load of money for @justrifles 👍 • I had the privilege of meeting @dflatman who was a brilliant host and a top bloke. He absolutely insisted we take this photo together, I couldn’t say no. 🤥 • My taxi home wasn’t bad either... • #celebrityselfie #militarycharity #roastbeefdinner #woundedwarriors #londonforlunch #hurlinghamclub #amplife #amputeeawarenessmonth #stgeorgesday

We have awarded motorsport charity, KartForce, a grant of £10,000. KartForce are a team of serving and former serving, injured soldiers who travel all over the UK and aboard, racing specialised karts. It is an opportunity to socialise and meet new people with similar interests. The drivers champion Karforce as having changed their lives, with many of them benefiting psychologically and physically from the involvement. Sergeant Ross Turner, KartForce Team Manager, said: “The support we have received from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity means a lot to us soldiers. The funds are essential and allow us to carry on entering team endurance kart races all around the UK and Europe. There is nothing better than finishing a 24hr race with a team of like-minded lads! The buzz that we all feel when we get together to compete mirrors what I miss about my time in the Army. KartForce is much more than just karting.” Our grant will go towards three, nine hour long races. . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #Kartforce #KartRacing #motorsports

An army sergeant is aiming to run himself into the record books by completing the fastest marathon in a suit of armour for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. Paul Beddows from Cambridgeshire will run the 26.2 mile route wearing 31 kg of metal.

Our Forces families had a wonderful time on SSAFA’s short breaks. We provide a weekend family break for military families with a member with additional needs. They’re an opportunity for families to spend some quality time together, and try new activities. The children took part in activities such as kayaking, biking, archery and abseiling! We’re so glad we could support these families.

Huge thanks to Gemma Slaughter and the 71 strong team that took on 1,000 miles each for SSAFA! Sgt Slaughter recruited people to take on the challenge in honour of the 100 year anniversary of the formation of the RAF and her own base RAF Digby. She had over 70 takers and many of them completed the challenge, finishing their last mile into Lincoln together. They racked up an impressive 72,000 miles!

We have awarded Wiltshire Citizens Advice more than £6,000. This will go towards the project costs needed to increase the support they offer to the growing Army community in Wiltshire. Currently, they support over 15,000 people across Wilshire in anything from debt, welfare benefits, and discrimination to housing and employment. Brigadier (Ret’d) Robin Bacon, Chief of Staff, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity said: “It is clear that as the Army community in Wiltshire grows, there is going to be an increased demand for the vital services that Wiltshire Citizens Advice offers. It is important that they are able to continue to help thousands of people each year and we are proud to be able to help them achieve their goal for our soldiers.” . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #Wilshirecitzensadvice #ArmyCommunity #Wiltshire

This #InternationalChildrensBookDay we celebrate shared reading charities @readingforce2017. We have supported Reading Force since 2014 and, in November 2017, we awarded them a grant of £25,000. Reading Force encourages families, both at home or separated by deployment or training, to share their thoughts on a book and fill in a scrapbook. This is to maintain the family bond for military personnel who may be away from their families for long periods of time. A mother, whose children have used Reading Force, commented: “As Daddy was away on exercise, Thomas and Phoebe were able to feel closer to him, have something to talk to him about, and it also reduced the separation anxiety.” . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #reading #readingwithchilderen #parenting #readwithme #earlyreader #readers #KS1 #KS2 #KS3 #teaching
On #InternationalChildrensBookDay we would like to recognise the amazing work @littletroopers_ does. Little Troopers launched their new ‘bedtime story’ app in June 2017 with help from a £10,000 grant awarded by our charity. The app, which is exclusively available to military personnel, allows the serving parent(s) to choose a book for their child and record a video reading, synchronised with the turning of the pages. This allows serving personnel to stay connected with their families through the magic of stories while they are away from home. Louise Fetigan, the Founder of Little Troopers, commented: “I’m so pleased that we can offer this app to our British Armed Forces families. Our aim is to help families stay connected through time apart and, with the help of The Soldiers’ Charity and HarperCollins, we’ve been able to make that aim a reality.” . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #reading #readingwithchilderen #parenting #readwithme #earlyreader #readers #KS1 #KS2 #KS3 #teaching

94-year-old Sid Sallis first joined the Army in 1942, serving as a driver before joining the 1st Airborne Division. Corporal Sallis is the last surviving Royal Army Service Corps Air Despatcher to serve at Operation Market Garden, the battle of Arnhem campaign. At just 21 years old, Sid joined the 1st Airborne Division’s 63 Squadron and only a few months later was flying over Arnhem dropping supplies to British Paratroopers. Sid recalls: “We lost 19 men just on the first day. I was really lucky – in the RAF Stirlings, there was a big hole in the floor, so it was one false move and you were out!” When he needed to move into a care home in England following a period of ill health in 2015, Sid’s family sought help. ABF the Soldiers’ Charity were approached and agreed to assist with his care home fees. Sid’s health and lucidity have improved markedly. Sid’s daughter-in-law said: “We are really very grateful of the funding support that has been given; it has made a huge difference.” . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #WWII #Hero #Veteran

We have given Change Step a grant of more then £49,000. Change Step offers effective support for veterans in Wales. This includes a dedicated service for those in crisis, practical and direct support for older veterans, crisis peer mentoring for those with mental health and substance misuse needs, and effective liaising between prisons, local authorities and statutory services. Since 2014, the project has supported more than 1,500 veterans and their families. Project manager, Simon Frith, who spent seven years in the Royal Navy and now leads a team of around a dozen peer mentors across Wales said: “This valuable funding will enable Change Step to develop new partnerships and strengthen our existing working arrangements throughout Wales – with a particular focus on supporting more isolated veterans in rural areas. We look forward to working with the ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, and to continuing to demonstrate how effective peer mentoring can be of real benefit for former members of our Armed Forces.” . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #riflerun #thesoldierscharity #ChangeStep #Wales #VeteransinWales

Today, the life of our beneficiary and supporter, Bombardier Bill Price, is honoured at a memorial service in Christchurch. Bill, a WWII Normandy veteran, passed away at the age of 103 years old at the beginning of this year. He volunteered in 1938 for the Territorial Army, enlisting in to the Royal Engineers, and was subsequently involved in the defence of London during the Blitz. In 1941, Bill transferred to the Royal Artillery, where he became known as ‘Trigger Bill’ as he was considered quick on the draw, firing Bofors 40mm guns. In 1944, Bill served on the Merchant Ship Innerton, which became part of a very large convoy of ships that crossed the channel bound for Normandy. During Operation Overlord, on D-Day, he manned an anti-aircraft gun. Bill told us; “This was frightening, I was scared”, he continued, “I felt proud of being part of the landings, guns firing off, rockets… I fought for our freedom.” Bill served through the entire Second World War and was demobbed in November 1945. In 2005, he was presented with the Légion d'honneur medal for his service in securing the freedom of France. Today we say our final farewell to an exceptional gentlemen. We send our condolences to his wife Helen, and his family and friends. . . . #army #veterans #hmarmedforces #military #charity #armedforces #militarycharity #fundraise #veteran #britisharmy #support #supportourforces #WWII #Hero #Veteran
Today, we’re turning the spotlight on one of our amazing fundraisers, just over a month before she joins more than 40,000 other mad / dedicated / inspiring individuals taking on the world-famous London Marathon on 22nd April. @naomigabphoto first became involved with our charity, having no prior knowledge of the work we do, in January 2016, after responding to a tweet we posted looking for a photographer to help us with a beneficiary photoshoot. Since then, Naomi has travelled the length and breadth of the UK, meeting and photographing many of our fantastic beneficiaries, covering our events, and shooting products for our online shop. It is hearing the beneficiaries’ stories, and how we have worked to help them, that has inspired Naomi, a self-confessed ‘non-runner’, to take on this epic challenge. Naomi said: "I have worked with this charity taking photographs for their case studies for the last two years, and with each beneficiary I meet I am humbled, inspired and thankful for their service to our country. This is why I have chosen to run the London Marathon for this amazing cause!"
