The Scots Guards Charity

Thank you for your support

Our charity supports serving and retired soldiers and their families. We provide assistance through many means, including (but not exclusive to) debt relief, respite breaks, mobility assistance, education, home improvement/mobility alterations and financial support.

We set up a further charity sub-fund, The Colonel’s Fund, to provide our soldiers (serving and retired) and their families with the assistance they need during operations. Invest My Community – The Scots Guards Charity

A grant of £500 towards funeral costs was made to a 70 year old former Sergeant in the Scots Guards with 13 years service. The veteran served in Cyprus, Malaya, Hong Kong and Northern Ireland. The sudden death of his wife and a lack of savings resulted in the former soldier being unable to meet the cost of his wife’s funeral.
