School Children to go Camo Charity
Children at Marham Infant School will be wearing a very different type of uniform on Friday 29th June when they dress up for Camo Day to mark the national Armed Forces Day celebrations and raise cash for the military charity SSAFA Forces Help, also known as The Soldiers Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.
Similar events will be held across the country to raise money for SSAFA who support those who are serving or have served in the military as well as their families. Camo Day will also be the school’s way of marking Armed Forces Day taking place on Saturday 30th June, a national day to recognise the sacrifices and on-going contribution of our Armed Forces, their friends and family.
The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help is the national charity for those who serve in our Armed Forces, those who used to serve, and the families of both. Each year their network of 7,500 volunteers provide practical support and assistance to more that 50,000 people, ranging from D-Day veterans to young soldiers wounded in Afghanistan.
At RAF Marham SSAFA Forces Help discreetly offer practical, emotional or financial support. We have a dedicated team of Community Volunteers who are friendly faces that lend a hand with the ordinary things that can be so hard to deal with sometimes such as when there is an illness in the family, coping with children (especially when a partner is detached out-of-area) and when new to Service life or the area. The SSAFA Forces Help Volunteer Co-ordinator at RAF Marham can be contacted on 07984 908622.
