Here at Trinity we are proud to announce our new partnership with SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. SSAFA are the UK’s oldest national tri – service charity and undertake incredible work to support our Armed Forces, including veterans and reserves, and their families.
We’re excited to be supporting SSAFA this month with their Big Brew Up event, which encourages everyone across the UK to stick the kettle on and brew up in support of our Armed Forces. We’ll be arranging plenty of Big Brew Up events with Trinity and SSAFA representatives at hand (plus a good supply of biscuits, cake and brew!) so watch this space. Make sure you give Trinity and SSAFA a like on Facebook to keep up to date with what we have planned.
Who are SSAFA?
SSAFA have been serving the Armed Forces community for over 130 years and support around 60,000 people every year. Their support covers both regulars and reserves in the British Army, the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force and their families, including anyone who has completed National Service. SSAFA work in partnership with other military charities and specialist organisations to ensure that anyone in need gets the help they deserve. They also have their own network of over 7000 volunteers, including a large number that work on military bases to directly help families meet the challenges of service life.
