Members packed the Hucknall Leisure Centre to hear charity secretary Pam Sutton explain how Troop AID helped service men and women who had been injured on active service or in training accidents around the world.

As a result members helped boost the charity’s funds by over £360 which Pam described as a most generous response.

The charity sends thousands of bags of personal items to UK armed forces bases around the world.
