Allan Webb Ltd is a proud, longstanding supporter of SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity, and our team were delighted to once again host a table at its flagship event, the Defence Industry Charitable Dinner, in London.
Hosted this year by General Sir Nick Carter GCB CBE DSO ADC Gen, Chief of the Defence Staff, the event brought together representatives from the internal defence sector with the aim of highlighting its partnerships with the UK Armed Forces; whilst raising much needed funds for SSAFA.
“It was a wonderful evening spent with colleagues and friends across the Defence Industry” remarked Rory Lipington, Managing Director of Allan Webb Ltd, “SSAFA is a charity close to the heart of the company and we’re pleased to be able to offer our support wherever we can”.
An integral part of Allan Webb’s Corporate Social Responsibility, and commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, involves supporting our current and former Armed Forces members both internally and externally. SSAFA is regularly a focal point for these efforts including regular attendance at their annual fundraiser dinner.
SSAFA has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Each year teams of volunteers and employees help more than 82,000 people in need, from WW2 veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts, and their families.
