Scots Guards Colonel's Fund

Recommended Posts

hey guys my mate in the scots guards is doing the london marathon for Scots Guards Colonel's Fund

here some info on it

Immediate and short term duty of care for wounded soldiers lies with the Ministry of Defence and thereafter with appropriate Government Departments such as Health, Social security and Employment. There are also a number of charities such as SSAFA and the Army Benevolent Fund which do much to help support wounded soldiers and the families of soldiers killed on operations.But some of the necessary welfare support has always had to be provided from our Regimental charitable funds. The intensity of current and likely-future operations, and the frequency with which the Scots Guards are likely to be deployed, will place significantly greater demands on these funds ? more, probably much more, than the Regiment can afford.As a family regiment, the Scots Guards is determined to be in a position to provide the necessary support for members of the Regimental family ? in particular, for the Scots Guardsmen of the future who are wounded on operations, and for the families of those who are killed.In order to do so, the Regiment needs now to raise a substantial sum of money. To this end, a new fund, The Colonel`s Fund Scots Guards, has been created, and a major fund-raising appeal launched.

The fund will enable the Regiment to provide: Support to the families of those killed in action by responding promptly to problems of bereavement and hardship. Support to those wounded on operations, particularly those who have had to leave the Army; to assist in finding them new employment and to help them become active family and community members. Support to the families of those seriously wounded or injured in prolonged recovery situations
