MP visits armed forces charity
On Friday 25th June, during Armed Forces Week, Havant MP, Alan Mak, paid a visit to the SSAFA (the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) Havant Division to hear about the charity’s work in the area.
Mr Mak’s visit to the Divisional HQ in St Faiths Pallant Centre, Havant, gave him the chance to meet with SSAFA volunteers and hear at first-hand about the charity’s support for the local armed forces community, including those serving, veterans and their families.
Mr Mak was heard of a recent fundraising success involving a local 38-year-old ex-Parachute Regiment soldier, Jon Noble, who was confined to an electric chin-operated wheelchair after suffering a complete spinal cord injury in a road traffic accident.
Mr Mak said: “SSAFA is an inspirational charity doing fantastic work in the Havant area. I’m leading work in parliament to put the Armed Forces Covenant into law so we do more as a country for our veterans.”
