SSAFA Drumgrange Charity Walk
On Saturday 26th June 2021, 16 Drumgrange employees, family and friends took part in the 10-mile challenge to raise money in support of the SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, during the UK Armed Forces week. Drumgrange is excited to announce that we have raised £3,175.00 to date. It was a brilliant event to be involved with, and we would like to thank everyone who supported the charity walk.
Since 1885, the Armed Forces charity has been providing lifelong support to the Armed Forces community, from Second World War veterans to those who have served in more recent conflicts as well as their families.
13 members of the Drumgrange Team participated in the physical event that took place in London. Starting at the Tower Bridge, the 10-mile trek crossed 13 bridges and finished at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. At each bridge, we had the opportunity to engage with Reservist units, from whom we learnt more about the unit’s role and activities.
The Starting Line
Bridge Number 3
London Regiment Infantry for London
The Finishing Line
To get as many people involved as possible, there was an option to complete the challenge virtually, allowing people who could not travel to London to complete the walk in their local area. 3 members of the Drumgrange team completed the 10-mile trek across the Jurassic Coast in Dorset to help raise money for the SSAFA.
