Looking in at the Big Brew Up, organised by the Andover Branch of SSAFA (The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association), Sir George has his cup filled by local Fundraiser, Diana Hammond from Longparish.
“The last time SSAFA had a Big Brew Up in 1997, 200,000 people joined in and they raised over £110,000. This year, they hope to do better.”
Sir George praised the work done by SSAFA in his constituency “They have helped many ex servicemen and their families with advice, access to extra money and arranging holidays, through a network of 7,000 volunteers. Last year, they helped over 86,000 in need throughout the country.”
