Welcome to

The Veterans Charity

Registered Charity No. 1123149

How we help

We can provide support to Veterans who find themselves battling hardship and the distress it causes. Despite being a small charity, we operate nationally throughout the UK including Northern Ireland. We are able to assist with essentials such as food shopping (including pet and baby products where required), utilities support, clothing and footwear, household items and single appliances, smartphones/tablets and calling credit/data.

The recipient of our support must be someone who has served within UK Armed Forces and can verify their service.   


 In the past 5 years alone, we have delivered urgently-needed essential    support to more than 3500 Veterans despite facing a huge drop in vital    income because of the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. 
 Help us to continue delivering for those in dire hardship.

Entry fee now just £250!

Instalment options available

Ride To Horsa is a highly poignant and challenging cycling event which will follow a route from the former Tarrant Rushton Airfield to Ranville in Normandy. The route pays tribute to D-Day Heroes of two operations; Elmira and Coup de Main and will visit some of numerous key locations in Normandy and pass through stunning scenery from start to finish, over 3 consecutive days. Places are limited to 150 cyclists, each of whom will be required to raise funds for The Veterans Charity. Part of the funds raised will be used to create a unique memorial at Horsa Bridge, which will be unveiled on Sunday 8th September!
