Wire Fence has donated a full day of profits to a Dorset-based charity called Helping Homeless Veterans UK to celebrate Armed Forces Day.
Helping Homeless Veterans UK was set up to help and assist any former member of HM Armed Forces who find themselves struggling with being Street Homeless, Living in Hostels or Sofa Surfing.
Mr David Wood BCAv CEO/Director of Helping Homeless Veterans UK said:
“Our sole aim is to engage with Local Authorities throughout England and Wales to enforce legislation where it is required and also engage with private landlords to find suitable affordable accommodation.
“The funds which we will receive from Wire Fence will be spent on the Veterans that we provide continuous welfare support for, and we are all Volunteers with no wages spent out and our overheads are covered by Corporate Sponsors.”
Armed Forces Day is a UK-wide celebration occurring annually on the last Saturday of June. On this day, men and women from the Armed Forces community are being shown support and appreciation for the sacrifices they make for the nation. This includes troops, members of military families and cadets as well.
Wire Fence is dedicated to helping those in need. They decided to support a different organisation each month by organising a fundraising event. Read more about Wire Fence’s charitable initiative.
