Every year, we support the Just Rifles Charity Appeal for Wounded Soldiers at their annual Dinner and Dance.
Around 700 people come together to raise funds for injured servicemen and women or bereaved families to support them with what they need. The charity has been going for 5 years and 100% of donations go to where is matters most.
Last night was the 2016 dinner and dance, so we got dressed up and enjoyed a wonderful 3 course meal, a fantastic evening of entertainment and fundraising to support our brave men and women who served in Afghanistan.
There were lots of great fundraising activities and a live auction with an auctioneer who had everyone laughing so much they’d forgotten what was being bid on!
All the money raised last night will allow Just Rifles to provides immediate funds to meet the needs of injured Riflemen going through rehabilitation.
To date 63 Riflemen have been killed and nearly 100 very seriously injured (imminent threat to life or limb ) on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Just Rifles truly makes a difference.
Many injured servicemen and women or bereaved families find that there are things they need. It might be a break from everyday life, some household items may need replacing or perhaps a specific piece of sporting equipment is required to help those who have been injured continue to lead active lives despite physical injury. That is what Just Rifles is here to help with.
