The Big Brew Up takes place across the UK from 22-28 June and encourages people to host tea parties to raise vital funds for SSAFA, the UK’s oldest military charity, providing lifelong support to anyone currently serving or has ever served in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force.   The lasting impact of conflict of those who have served recently or the bereaved families left behind is only just started to be seen.  Please come along and support us to assist our troops and their families when they need help.

The BT group has a long association with the armed forces, traceable back to the Crimean War, and Openreach has recently recruited 2000 ex-military people and is an active supporter of reservists.  For more details on this story click here.
