Many charities have seen fundraising decimated during the Covid pandemic so our grants have been a lifeline
The isolation of social distancing has been tough for veterans and local residents, who would normally have met up at the Royal Navy Association club in West Bromwich, in the West Midlands.
Now, as restrictions are eased, the ex-military men and women will be perfectly placed to make the most of the new freedoms, thanks to a grant from our fund to make their club’s run-down galley ship-shape.
