Forces Charitable organisations

October 8, 2007

Cllr. Ken Smith of St. James’s Ward has asked us to pass this on. In view of the increasing number of wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan and concerns about current government policy on their treatment, we have pleasure in going so and hope for our readers’ support.

“Treatment Centres like Tyrwhitt House funded by Combat Stress has facilities that have been specially built to provide for ex servicemen and woman who are physically disabled and suffer from PTSD. Projects like 36, Grays Lane in Ashtead help families to get closure to loved one at the rehabilitation centre Headley Court; this could only come about by donations collected by SSAFA.

Charitable organisations engaged in assisting serving and former members of the armed forces and their families, saves the MOD £££, so why should 15% from donations collect during events held on MOD Defence Estate property go back to the HM Treasury? Would members please write to their MP or if you are on the internet go in to the web page http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/servicecharities/ and sign the petition.”
