Christmas is a time of giving and for SUPPORT OUR PARAS, this means the gift of festive cheer.
Every Christmas it has become a tradition for our charity to send a hamper to our veterans in need. These veterans are our Airborne brothers who may have previously been homeless, suffering with their mental health, are lonely and isolated or indeed suffering financially and in need of some support at this time of year.
Every hamper recipient is nominated by local Parachute Regimental Association branches and they include veterans of all ages, as well as a number of Chelsea Pensioners.
In 2022, the charity sent out 402 hampers, spending a total of £34,000. They are packed full of tinned food, biscuits, tea and coffee and many other things to help our veterans enjoy the Christmas period.
If you would like to contribute towards sending these wonderful gifts, please visit our Appeal page at Airborne Hamper Appeal 2023.
