Big brew ‘drive thru’ supports SSAFA Suffolk

Big brew ‘drive thru’ supports SSAFA Suffolk

02 Nov, 2020

RAF Honington held a coffee morning with a difference to support SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. In true COVID-19 style, the drive-thru coffee morning allowed personnel to pre-order their choice of cake or scone selection box via a QR code made available on social media. SSAFA Suffolk also kindly loaned its card reader, allowing contactless donations.

All together £369.10 was raised and, recognising that charities are experiencing a downturn in fundraising, and in lieu of very few expenses being incurred this year, the RAF Honington committee unanimously voted to donate these funds to SSAFA Suffolk, increasing the donation to an incredible £1,000.
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885 and is here to help serving personnel, veterans and their families.

About SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 85,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts, and their families. SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need.
