TVS was one of the race sponsors at this year's Soldiers Sailors Airmen Families Association (SSAFA) race day at Chepstow.
The SSAFA Race day is an event that TVS has proudly sponsored over a number of years and this year supported the event further by sponsoring the 'TVS Handicap Hurdle Race'.
This year the event has raised a whopping £27,612 with a cumulative total of £92,000 over the five years it has run. This is a substantial amount of money for the Armed Forces Charity and a massive improvement on last year’s total, which was around £23,000.
Paul Kettle – Business Development Director for Defence at TVS
“I was delighted that a number of our customers were able to join us and help raise a significant amount of money for this important charity. We recognise the vital role the Armed Forces make to the security of this country so providing assistance to families who have a need is something we feel proud to support".
The Armed Forces Charity exists to relieve the armed forces and veterans of distress, need and suffering for servicemen, veterans, and their families whilst supporting their independence and dignity. Last year the charity helped over 82,000 people, it is because of events like this that the SSAFA can continue to do the work they do.
