Royal support for Troop Aid

TROOP AID was founded in November 2006 by three ex servicemen, Ray Warren, Captain (retired) Al Sutton and Derek Joss as a result of a visit to Selly Oak Hospital’s Alexander Wing in Birmingham . This is the home of the Defence Medical Welfare Services who are responsible for the welfare of all Armed Forces Personnel, male and female who have been injured during the conflict in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

What do they do ?

When Troops return to the United Kingdom from the war zones they arrive back in their uniform, for example combat kit, boots etc.  They do not have any civilian clothing and usually no money to purchase essential necessities for their immediate use.

The objective of TROOP AID is to supply the basic essentials required when  Service casualties return from serving their country overseas.

Examples of what they supply are:  A large holdall containing washing and shaving kit,  trainers and socks, underwear, tracksuits, T-shirts sweatshirts and a warm fleece. Female requirements are also provided.

They also supply videos, dvds, books, games and confectionery which includes chocolate, crisps, biscuits etc.

Acorn have been in a supply partnership with Troop Aid from the beginning and are very proud to continue to support them. They are doing a fantastic job and it has just been announced that Prince Charles has agreed to become their Patron.

This truly a great moment for the charity (Registered Charity No: 1123888) The support for them has been fantastic and now with Royal approval they will go from strength to stregth.
