SuperTrooper – Reader’s Nomination Leads To Additional Funds To ‘Troop Aid’!
Winning Issue 189’s Charity Award is reader Andrew Parkhill who nominated TroopAid.
Troop Aid founded in 2006 support injured servicemen and women when they are admitted to hospital.
When service personnel are injured either on a training exercise or in combat operations they are admitted to hospital. Sometimes without any of their personal effects or clothing.
Troop Aid are on hand to support by distributing emergency packs to anyone who finds themselves in a state of emergency and emotional crisis. In total, the charity supports 27 locations worldwide.
Fondly called ‘Grab Bags‘, these packs include basic essentials such as clothing and toiletries. These packs enable wounded servicemen and women to gain dignity at a time of personal crisis.
