The annual Big Brew Up (BBU) is SSAFA’s most successful fundraising event and one that our staff are always keen to support. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a break from the day job and catch up with colleagues and customers over a cup of tea and a bite to eat.
During June, staff at 15 locations across our contracts organised a BBU event to raise much needed funds for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. The events coincided with Armed Forces Week and provided our teams with the opportunity to show their support for those who serve, and have served in the Forces.
At Abbey Wood in Bristol, BBUs took place over two days, and across the country, our Local Customer Service Centres (LCSCs) organised parties at mother and toddler groups and held coffee mornings in local community halls, all of which were well attended by local Service families. Further tea parties were held at our offices in Scotland, Catterick, Wyton, Chorley, Speke, Plymouth and MOD Whitehall.
Annastasia Williams, SSAFA’s Corporate Partnerships Officer, was delighted and said “SSAFA would like to say a huge thank you to those who hosted a Big Brew Up during Armed Forces Week. Thank you to everyone who took the time to volunteer and to those who attended their local event – your continued support is making a real difference to the Serving men and women, veterans, and their families during and after their life in the Armed Forces.”
