Newsletter from SSAFA, The Armed Forces Charity


Help for you     Volunteer     Fundraise



Welcome to the SSAFA August e-newsletter!

We are delighted to share with you our monthly email update for our friends and supporters. From everyone here at SSAFA we would like to thank you for your support towards the Armed Forces community. In this latest edition we reflect on a busy summer, whilst looking at upcoming events over the next few months, and show you the brand new children t-shirts from our SSAFA store! 


What happened in July:
For the second year in a row SSAFA is the sponsored partner of Battle Proms. We want to thank everyone who turned up this month and supported us across the different venues. Thanks to your generosity so far we have raised an incredible £37,258! 
The fun isn't over just yet as we still have two more events to come in August, making this a truly fantastic summer for SSAFA. 
Latest Impact Report

Our latest impact report is now available for you to view. Last year alone 82,001 people in the Armed Forces community received our support - 12% more than in 2017. 

We now have more than 5,000 trained SSAFA volunteers, who donated 1.2 million hours of their time, to provide personalised, face-to-face support to those in their local area. To hear from our beneficiaries click below and discover their story.
