Once, We Were Soldiers

MAA black tie dinner donates to veterans charity again


The MAA recently presented the charity "Once, We Were Soldiers" a cheque for the money raised at the MAA black tie dinner. This was the third time members have raised money in a raffle for this charity who support homeless veterans. In 2018 we raised £1565, in 2019 we raised £1820.

"Many thanks to everyone involved in raising a huge amount of £3385 for Once, We Were Soldiers!

The funds raised for example will keep the OWWS house running for another six months where we currently have three veterans staying there who were once homeless and now able to plan their future.

It could also provide a deposit and a month's rent to secure private rented property for at least two future clients or maybe funds towards furnishing a veterans new home!

Again, many thanks from everyone at OWWS it's people like yourselves who really can make a difference to somebody's life!
