The Airborne Forces Security Fund is to provide Christmas Hampers again this year and they are to be distributed to proven Ex-Airborne soldiers or their dependants, in need. They do not have to be members of the Parachute Regimental Association.

 Hampers are normally delivered directly to the recipient by our supplier. Should branches wish to deliver them, the Branch Secretary’s name and address should be included. Delivery is free to the UK Mainland and Ireland only.

 The attached pro forma is to be filled in completely, regardless of method of delivery, and returned to me by FRIDAY 14 DECEMBER 2018. It is most essential that the address is legible, correct and accompanied by a postcode.

 The value of each hamper or cheque provided by the Airborne Forces Security Fund will be £75. Although the attached pro forma provides for three nominations per branch we appreciate it may, for example, be difficult to choose between one veteran and another. If you would like to add any additional names to the reverse side of the form, we will be pleased to consider the request.

 If you know of a veteran/widow, in need, residing in a nursing or care home, we can send them a cheque. Please add their details to the pro forma including the address and post code of the home. A veteran/widow in residential care can be nominated in addition to those living independently and will not count against the three plus nominations.

 If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on telephone number 01206 817079 or by email:

 Yours sincerely
