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. During Armed Forces week were asking that you make 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 the monetary equivalent 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.
