Brothers In Arms as CFoR presents fundraising donation to SSAFA
CFoR have been working hard on raising money for several charities each year since 2007 including the Royal British Legion (RBL), The Colsterworth War Memorial campaign and the village churches. Last year was no different where CFoR we proud to raise £800 for the Armed Forces charity, the Soldiers', Sailors', and Airmen's Families Association (SSAFA).
CFoR chair, Capt David Heath French, was proud to present a cheque to his brother, Richard French, a Parachute Regiment military veteran and Regional Fundraising Officer at SSAFA, with the cheque for £800 outside our village War Memorial features.
It was a nice moment for the CFoR, Colsterworth and SSAFA with the added special moment of the two brothers coming together was a great cause. Richard French said, "we are very proud to accept this donation from the Colsterworth Festival of Remembrance as this money will go towards providing lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents".
Thank you to all that helped us achieve this donation and we look forward to doing the same again this year.
