Winter Fan Dance

The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km non-navigational race over two sides of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. This infamous route has long been a part of SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) Selection and is considered the yardstick of a candidate’s potential to perform well on Test Week and ultimately pass the Special Forces Selection programme.

Fundraising Stamps

It’s that time of year when Christmas cards are starting to land on your doorstep, adorned with festive postage stamps. Instead of recycling the envelopes with the stamps on, why not cut the stamps off and help us raise some pennies?

Fundraising Stamps will pay us £11 per kilo for recycled stamps.  All you need to do is request a pre-paid envelope from their website, pop your old stamps in there and send it back. It’s that easy!

So please, save your stamps and help us raise a little bit extra to help a Para and his family in need this Christmas by visiting our Fundraising Stamps page and requesting your envelopes now.

moneycorp Trading Day

On November 23,  in association with City AM hosted a day for ‘Support Our Paras’ where a number of injured Paras paired up with moneycorp dealers.

Traders got the opportunity to speak to the Paras about their time in the regiment and about some of the experiences they have had.  Lt Gen Sir John Lorimer, Colonel Commandant of The Parachute Regiment, also came down to join the guys at the moneycorp offices.

The day was organised to raise awareness and funds for the Charity supporting our soldiers and families.  You can add your support by visiting the moneycorp Support Our Paras page.
