What We Aim For
The objective of Troop Aid is to supply the ‘basic essentials’ to service casualties of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force injured either whilst in training or at war, serving their country.
Anyway, my lad grew up and joined 1st Battalion Fusiliers and was quite seriously hurt on exercise in Canada a couple of years ago.
Troop Aid provided clothing and essentials for him whilst he was in hospital and we will always be grateful for what you guys did for him.
He went on to make a full recovery and is still serving in the Fusiliers.
During a hospital visit to the staff member, I came across Troop Aid by chance and registered for support straight away.
Troop Aid delivered a package within 48hrs and provided the most amazing essentials for us to deliver to the bedside and put a smile back on the staff members face (as well as a reminder to shave at least once per day with shaving oil and a razor supplied!!), it really helped the visit as well as reassured the member of staff of what support is out there from such a worthwhile charity.
When we asked Troop Aid for support to a second member of staff with a life changing illness, we again received significant support with a further enhanced package and many items for us to advertise Troop Aid in an effort to increase their support network. As a Welfare Officer, I am amazed at the provision of such items, being delivered at a time of need and Troop Aid being on hand to provide timely support. This has had such a positive impact on personnel admitted to hospital and was such an efficient process involved.
We can not recommend Troop Aid enough, they were very sensitive to the needs of each and every case and went out of their way to ensure packages were delivered on time. We are reassured by their support and will continue to support Troop Aid in any way we can to ensure the support to others is there when it is needed. Thank you for such a superb amount of support.
A year on I am racing in karts again where my heart lies, for what you have done for me, I'd like to place the troop aid logo on the karts if that's ok with you, and I'd like to do some fundraising on your behalf if you will allow it :)
11months later was having an operation and was only supposed to stay in for the day. Had a bad situation after and stayed in longer than I thought, and would like to thank Troop Aid at Queen Elizabeth hospital for sorting me out with a week's worth of clothes and toiletries. Amazing charity and definitely should be more recognised. Even when I was casevaced in May, troop aid was there with everything I need the 1st time And same again this time can't thank you enough !!
It's the little things that make a big difference when you are flown from an operational area into the UK and often the last thing on your mind is a wash kit and change of clothing.
Not knowing how long they will be admitted in hospital, the Troop Aid bag provides that hygenic freshen up that can instantly make them feel better.
Having access to refreshments and snacks in the day room on Ward 412 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is also an instant reminder of the feeling of being back home. Troop Aid are a small package but they absolutely make an immense difference.
