There has been national exposure for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity in one of the UK’s longest-running and most trusted lifestyle publications.
The organisation, the national charity of the British Army, has contributed an exclusive thought-leader article to Reader’s Digest about its work supporting past and present servicemen, and their families, around the world.
The article, which you can read here, highlights how the charity has helped veterans who have suffered life-changing injuries, mental health issues and who have become homeless.
It also discusses the forthcoming ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s Evening of Spoken Word event, which takes place on October 2nd and will feature the first public performance of a newly-commissioned series of poems by award-winning poet and former Army major Martin Figura.
The event marks the 75th anniversary of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s and will also feature performances from the likes of actors Jeremy Irons and Jenny Agutter, reading of a poem by 96-year-old veteran Sid Sallis that recounts his experiences during the Battle of Arnhem, and teenager Alix Hale, whose father Captain Mark Hale was killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2009.
