Charities. 

 

The Regiment has for some time had a charitable trust, which is used to help those within the Regiment who have been injured. Although money may be available from other sources this can get tied up in Red tape, this fund enables the Regiment to assist as needed, pay for items required quickly.

 

Sapper Support

 

In the Autumn of 2014 whilst attending the Remembrance parade at the Cenotaph in London, we learnt of the untimely death of a brother sapper. It’s always sad when a young life ends, but even sadder when you learn the person took their own life. He had been suffering from PTSD.  The suffering that PTSD causes is well documented but only truly appreciated by those it affects and those friends and family who witness its corrosive grip.

Initially designed to help sappers, the volume of calls we have received and the different number of cap Badges has meant that we have needed to adapt quickly. With the increasing number of 999 personnel contacting us we are now a multi service charity.

We now have a facility to help with early diagnosis, pay for that all important initial assessment. Once diagnosed, treatment can begin.


Holiday for Heroes 

 

Holidays 4 Heroes is an informal group of people that assists wounded service personnel and their families get a precious break from the routine of rehab, hospital appointments and visits to welfare offices by facilitating holidays away from it all in accommodation donated by our sponsors in the UK and abroad.

 

Felix Fund

 

Felix Fund supports bomb disposal experts and their families. We fund therapeutic breaks for bomb disposal teams returning from Afghanistan and other welfare and rehabilitation facilities for EOD units. We also provide hardship grants for individual members of ‘the bomb disposal family’ in need.
