A very close friend of Varlowe Industrial Services is partaking in this years Rally For Heroes, a driving event aimed to raise money for amazing charities around the UK. This year, they are raising money for the outstanding SSAFA. David Fry and his Bee Cool Performance Bentley Continental Gt will drive through 10 countries that have been affected by war, in just 10 days, before returning back to the UK.
“So this is our first time entering in the Rally For Heroes, and we hope to be able to raise a total of £3000 for the SSAFA representing a pound for every mile we have complete during the Challenge.”
SSAFA is the oldest Armed Forces charity which was started in 1885 to offer support to the diverse changes its personnel and veterans have to face. The work they do for our servicemen and their families is second to none, providing practical, emotional and financial support.
“Whenever our Forces need them, SSAFA will do whatever they can to help. They’ve been doing that since 1885, through two World Wars and through every conflict since. But SSAFA can only do that with the help of people who support them. Every 5 miles driven represents the life of a serviceman or woman who has fallen in combat since the start of the Afghanistan conflict. This is especially important for SSAFA, as they provide specialist support to hundreds of bereaved and injured service families affected by recent conflicts, including Afghanistan.”
