Over 100 guests, Troop Aid Trustees and volunteers witnessed the very moving ceremony.
The charity’s Patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in a letter to Troop Aid Chairman Al Sutton said: "This is really excellent news and I send my warmest congratulations to you and all at Troop Aid for continued success, and renewed thanks for all that you do on behalf of our injured troops."
Al Sutton commented: "On behalf of Troop Aid, we are all very honoured and delighted to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This special accolade reflects the hard work by the Trustees and volunteers in supporting our injured servicemen and women since the charity was formed."
Supporting our injured troops
TROOP AID was founded in November 2006 by three ex servicemen as a result of a visit to Selly Oak Hospital’s Alexandra Wing in Birmingham. This is the home of the Defence Medical Welfare Services who are responsible for the welfare of all Armed Forces Personnel, male and female who have been injured during the conflict in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
TROOP AID understands that everyone who joins the Armed Forces may one day go to war and fight for their country. At the Queen Elizabeth Hospital injured servicemen and women receive the very best medical care.
When injured troops return to the United Kingdom from the war zones they arrive back without their personal effects or clothing. The objective of TROOP AID is to support them by providing the basic essentials in our GRAB BAGS.
Our funds come entirely from fund raising events and donations from organisations such as Rotary International, Lions International, Masonic Lodges, Round Table, Primary and Secondary Schools, ex Service Associations, the local business community, the general public and several British expatriate communities overseas. We will continue to help our troops returning from conflicts for as long as necessary. TROOP AID speakers are happy to visit any groups and organisation to talk about the work they do.
