One of the best ways to support our serving troops is by contributing to one of the many excellent charities which exist for the benefit of our friends and family members who are in the military. Military charities are so important because they supply advice and help to both troops and their families, providing much needed support before, during and after deployments.
The Fisher House Foundation
Fisher House supports our military personnel when they need it the most. In the event of a serving man or woman being injured or falling ill, Fisher House donates a ‘comfort home’ which enables both the serviceman or woman and their family to stay in during their recovery and recuperation, free of charge.
Fisher House also supports individual military families in need, administering and sponsoring scholarships for military children, the Hero Miles program and Newman’s Own Award. Support Fisher House by visiting their website, www.fisherhouse.org.
The Royal Marines Charitable Trust
This wonderful charity is committed to providing support both at home and overseas, providing recovery pathways for injured personnel, funding homecoming events for returning troops and continuing with the same level of support for personnel who decide to leave the military. You can support the Royal Marines Charitable Trust by purchasing a wristband from RV Ops, or by visiting the RMCTF website.
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity
With a husband in the Navy, it’s no wonder that this charity is close to my heart. The RNRMC provides support for the whole Naval family, for anyone with a serving family member who finds themselves in need, and for personnel who require help or advice of any kind. Visit their RNRMC webpage to find out more about the wonderful work they do and for information about how to support our troops at home and abroad.
