TVS Supply Chain Solutions (TVS SCS) has donated a brand new top-of-the-range Hitachi television to the BLESMA charity, as part of the company’s continued support to the MoD and its servicemen and women.

The television formed part of the supply chain specialist’s exhibition stand at last year’s Defence Vehicle Dynamics (DVD) event, home to the UK’s biggest demonstration of armoured vehicles and Land Environment equipment.

Visitors to DVD included a range of military personnel such as DE&S, Army Headquarters, Defence Academy, training schools, Joint Headquarters and other key front line commands. The event provided a platform for industry to hear first-hand from military personnel who have been deployed on operations, and better understand the equipment used by the British Army.

TVS has supported BLESMA for many years raising hundreds of pounds by encouraging DVD visitors to make donations to this worthwhile cause. This year they decided to give the TV to BLESMA so that it can be immediately enjoyed by ex-service personnel as part of their rehabilitation.

Brian Hewer, Business Development and Account Manager at TVS, said: “We have a longstanding relationship with BLESMA who not only provide great support to injured servicemen and women, but also their families and dependants. We are proud to support such a worthwhile charity and we hope this small gesture will be enjoyed by those going through their rehabilitation.”

BLESMA is a national charity that directly supports service men and women who have lost limbs, the use of limbs or experienced other debilitating health issues.

Ian Walker, Operational Director at BLESMA, said: “As a charity, we heavily rely on the generosity of companies like TVS Supply Chain Solutions to help provide the necessary care for our servicemen and women and we are very grateful for their donation which we know will make a positive difference to the people we support.”
