Background to the fundraising for ‘Army Welfare Service’.
One of the main sources of support available to Army personnel and
their families is through the Army Welfare Service (AWS). It offers important welfare support service for servicemen and women and their families, wherever they are located. They help families to settle in
to new surroundings when there are postings; support families during periods of separation; offer advice and help on housing and health,
schools and childcare and other aspects of life that forces families may face. Funds raised from this Christmas Market will help in the work that AWS does at Pirbright Camp.
