Foundations Big Brew Up raises funds for SSAFA

Service users and staff at Foundations Drug and Alcohol Service in Grimsby enjoyed a cuppa and a cake raising over £51 for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Armed Forces Charity.

They were taking part in SSAFA’s annual Big Brew Up, which runs each year during Armed Forces Week (19 to 25 June), to raise funds to provide lifelong support to all the British Forces and their families.

RDaSH Non-Medical Prescriber Steve Pickett who organised the event said: “SSAFA does some fantastic work for people who are serving now, as well as veterans and it’s a charity close to my heart as I served in the Armed Forces.

“Some of my colleagues have family who are serving, and we often have ex-servicemen accessing our service for support, so we know first-hand about the help and support provided by the charity.”

Thanks to a generous donation of 1,100 teabags from York-based caterers Miller Food Service and a bumper batch of delicious homemade cakes baked by Steve’s wife Elaine, staff and service users took a tea break and enjoyed a delicious cupcake – all for a very good cause.
