On behalf of ssafa Northumberland, I would like to offer my grateful thanks to everyone involved in the Dishforth Military Wives Choir concert at The Alnwick Garden on Saturday, April 18.

Thank-you to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, the choir and accompanist, the cadets who helped on the day, all those who attended and everyone else involved.

A special thanks to those who donated prizes for the raffle: Total Flooring, Alnwick; Charles Evans, Acklington; Mick Oxley, Craster; Richard Twyford Solicitor; Eshott Airfield, Bockenfield; Alnwick Accountants; MOJO, Alnwick; Jobson of Alnwick; ssafa Northumberland; Alnwick Rum; Ringtons Tea; Gregg’s Bakery; Morrison’s, Blyth; Lidl; Asda, Gosforth; Aln Valley Railway; Sainsbury’s, Alnwick; private, Rotary. Books written and signed by the Duchess were also raffled.

ssafa (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) is the oldest national military charity providing support for our servicemen and women and those that have served.

All money raised from the event will be used in Northumberland for the good of our servicemen and women past and present and the families of both so that when the need arises, ssafa will be there to relieve that need and suffering.

Major Brian Finlayson,

ssafa Northumberland
