Afghanistan Trust - 3 PARA fund for wounded soldiers

Due to the poor level of financial support provided by the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, the CO of the 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment, Lieutenant-Colonel Stuart Tootal, has set up a trust fund to help the 26 soldiers already wounded in Aghanistan. The Afghanistan Trust aims to promote "the relief of soldiers of the battalion injured in Afghanistan and families of the soldiers killed or injured in Afghanistan".
If you would like to donate please make cheques payable to the Afghanistan Trust and send to 3 Para, Hyderabad Barracks, Mersea Rd, Colchester CO2 7TB or you can pay directly into the account 10548799 with sort code 161926.
