For an Excellent Cause...
Troop Aid is a charity which supports our injured Troops returning to the United Kingdom from the war zones.
This includes providing Grab Bags containing the ‘basic essentials’ to troops staying in military hospitals who arrive back without their personal effects or clothing.
Troop Aid have also sponsored two rooms at Selly Oak Hospital for the families of Armed Forces Personnel who are in intensive care.
Their funds come entirely from fund raising events and donations from organisations such as Help for Heroes, the local business community, the general public and several British expatriate communities overseas.
So PLEASE give generously so that Troop Aid can continue to help our Troops returning from conflicts for as long as possible.
