On 14 July 2015, we are holding a Charity Dinner at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in the City of London EC1 2BQ. This will be the first SUPPORT OUR PARAS major fund raising event for 2015. A similar event held at the HAC in 2014 in support of the Afghanistan Trust was attended by City bankers, lawyers, accountants, consultants and business men, among others.
This year’s Dinner will be the first under the banner of the SUPPORT OUR PARAS charity. We hope the evening will be a celebration of the achievements that have been made with your support. It is only with your help that we have been able to provide assistance to those who need it.
SUPPORT OUR PARAS is a registered charity (1131977) which supports The Parachute Regiment through the welfare of serving soldiers, their families, those affected by recent operations and through the maintenance of its regimental efficiency, ethos, spirt and heritage.
