Scots Guards Charitable Funds
Hello and welcome from Regimental Headquarters Scots Guards
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
By donating a minimum of £2.50 towards The Colonel's fund Scots Guards, we will send you a Regimental Wrist Band.
By donating more than £15.00, we will also include a copy of the "In the footsteps of Heroes", a CD by the Regimental Band and Pipes and Drums of the Scots Guards, in aid of The Colonel's Fund Scots Guards, as a "thank you" from the Colonel, His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent and all members of the Regiment.
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent the charity will receive an extra 25% at no additional cost to you.
Thank you for your support.
About The Colonel's FundScots Guards:
Immediate and short term duty of care for wounded soldiers lies with the Ministry of Defence and thereafter, with appropriate Government Departments such as Health, Social Security and Employment. There are also a number of charities such as SSAFA, Help for Heroes, Combat Stress and ABF The Soldiers Charity which do much to help support wounded soldiers and the families of soldiers killed on operations.
But some of the necessary welfare support has always had to be provided from our own Regimental charitable funds. The intensity of current and likely-future operations, and the frequency with which the Scots Guards are likely to be deployed, will place ever increasing demands on these funds – more, probably much more, than the Regiment can afford.
As a family regiment, the Scots Guards is determined to be in a position to provide the necessary support for members of the Regimental family – in particular, for the Scots Guardsmen of the future who are wounded on operations, and for the families of those who are killed.
In order to do so, the Regiment needs now to raise a substantial sum of money. To this end, a new fund, The Colonel`s Fund Scots Guards, has been created, and a major fund-raising appeal launched.
The fund will enable the Regiment to provide:
- Support to the families of those killed in action by responding promptly to the problems of bereavement and hardship.
- Support to those wounded on operations, particularly those who have had to leave the Army; to assist in finding them new employment and to help them become active family and community members.
- Support to the families of those seriously wounded or injured in prolonged recovery situations.
