    Story

    Our brave friends from Afghanistan, the same guys who have fought so bravely alongside our Forces for almost 20 years have had to leave their homeland and wider families behind just to survive. They have arrived in our country with their young families with nothing but the clothes they left in. We are trying to raise as much as we can to support them in whatever way possible.

      Home Office Paperwork is being completed and it is hoped that folks can start job interviews before Christmas and start working in early 2022. Naturally, everyone is very keen to work and provide for their families but you kind donations have helped to bridge some of this cap, as some families have absolutely no cash for things like haircuts, buying a coffee, going to the cinema. We have continued to provide transport for clothing drops and donation collections, Thanks again to you all for your assistance and will update again soon.

      Hi Guys - Just a short update on the latest state of play with our Afghan Friends. We have managed to centralise personnel and families in temporary hotel accommodation near to the various units that raised and trained them in Afghanistan. This has had the added benefit of support being close by and has facilitated regular visits and updates.

      I would like to sincerely thank all of you who have given such generous donations to our cause. I would also like to thank those of you who have given donations of clothes, toiletries, and other essentials to help our Afghan Friends and their young families. Every penny raised is going towards supporting these families while we wait for the Home Office Support Plan to kick in. I have spoken to many and they are hugely appreciative. Thanks again and Godspeed to our Armed Forces operating in appalling conditions in Kabul to save these people.
