Shirley Lions

p1090563Following a recent donation members from Shirley Lions were invited to visit Troop Aid (www.troopaid.info) where we heard about the valuable work that is being done supporting injured British troops and saw items waiting to be packed prior to shipment around the world. They found out that whilst there had been a lot of publicity for Troop Aid during the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq the demand for their services has in fact increased as troops are currently deployed in over 80 countries worldwide and any injured personnel are brought back to the UK.  It was pleasing to note that Troop Aid had been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.  This is the MBE for volunteer groups.
