SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has been announced as the official main charity sponsor of Armed Forces Day National Event 2019 being held in Salisbury on 29 June. Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community – from current serving troops to Service families, Veterans and Cadets.

The SSAFA Armed Forces Day Hike, finishing at Hudson’s Field in Salisbury, will offer an additional opportunity to show support for the Armed Forces family. With a range of options available, there is something for everyone, from a family-friendly 7-mile route and a half marathon route to the ultimate challenge: a 26.2-mile marathon distance route. The hike is part of official Armed Forces Day national events and will help raise funds for SSAFA to support the more than 70,000 people who contact the charity for help each year.
