SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity
We are delighted to announce that since 1 January 2020, our charitable partner is SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. SSAFA exists to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity. You can find out more about SSAFA via their website: www.ssafa.org.uk.
As well as a number of exciting initiatives planned for the partnership, members can contribute directly in various ways, including running marathons, holding raffles and auctions, and adding donations to ticket prices. If you would like to host an event or contribute to the partnership, please contact the Company office; we would be delighted to hear from you.
Benevolent Fund, Legacies and Cadets
Our Benevolent Fund exists to alleviate hardship among HAC members and their immediate dependants. We also have a legacies/gifts programme and facilitate the distribution of members' second-hand uniform. Our support of cadet units is, of course, a key part of our activities too. If you are a member and would like to find out more about any of these activities, please visit the Members' Area; for all others, please use our General Enquiries contact details.
Between 2015 and 2019, a charitable partnership between the HAC and ABF The Soldiers' Charity raised in excess of £150,000 to support soldiers, veterans and their immediate families. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this fantastic effort.
