Richard Leighton Chairman at SSAFA
We want to say a huge thank you to Simplyhealth for its generous donation and to its employees for nominating us as one of their chosen charities for November. Each year, our trained staff and network of 7,500 volunteers across the UK provide practical support and assistance to more than 44,000 people. This included 1,466 veterans in Hampshire. Simplyhealth's donation will help us to continue to offer practical, emotional and financial support to anyone with any connection, past or present, to the Armed Forces in the local area. We help a whole range of people with different challenges; whether they are a serving family looking at adoption; a veteran in need of a new cooker; a mother needing a place to stay whilst her son recovers from an injury; or a family in need of a short respite break, we are here to help."
