Our Big Salute Charities 2022

Exciting military projects

This year we are very excited to have awarded over £40,000 to 5 fantastic charities who do amazing work supporting the military community. They have great projects and plans coming up for 2022 and we can't wait to see the results!

Here is a little information about how the money will help a few of those charities...
