2009 Charity Presentation at The Citadel
 

The formal presentation of our 2009/10 charity donation to the ‘Help for Heroes’ fund took place this Monday 29th March 2010 at The Citadel Plymouth.

Here is a message from our outgoing Charity Officer Marilyn Bradley on the events of the evening…

“We were all made very welcome into the officers mess and greeted with a drinks reception.  There were some other young officers there who took the time to speak with our members and show them around, then they joined the presentation party for the photo shoot.  A photographer from thr Herald also took pictures, I believe this will be in Wednesdays paper.
Major Steve Fraser said a few words of thanks and stressed how grateful they are for the support for the Memorial fund and how much it will mean to the families of the dead and injured.  Major Paul Greene was also their with his wife and he added his thanks and explained about the progress of the construction, planning approval should be imminent and the build will be completed very quickly.   Details of the inauguration will be sent to our Secretary when known.”

Some photos from the evening can be found here with an explanation of each photo below.  Enjoy…
