SSAFA is the oldest, national, tri-service charity – founded in 1885, and is committed to providing lifelong support to serving, ex-military and retired Forces personnel, which include the British Army, the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines and the Royal Air Force and their family members. The demands on its services have never been greater than they are now, whether practical, financial, or emotional.
Forces Cars Direct works with the charity by making a contribution for every vehicle sold and have today surpassed a great milestone and presented SSAFA with total donations to date of £11,390!
SSAFA, Commercial Partnerships Manager, Rob Macleay, said:
“SSAFA is delighted with our partnership with Forces Cars Direct. Now in its third year, the partnership has raised £11,390 to support SSAFA's services - providing lifelong support to our Armed Forces, veterans and their families. These valuable funds continue to help us in our mission to relieve need, suffering and distress, and to support independence and dignity, within the Armed Forces community. We look forward to the next three years of the partnership to ensure we can offer support to people in the Armed Forces community, whenever they need it, for as long as they need it.”
FCD Managing Director, Steve Thornton, said:
“It is our ethos to support our Armed Forces community, not just with our new car programme, but by giving something back and helping to offer continued aid for those who need it. We are incredibly proud to be able to present donations of such a substantial amount.”
