Helping the SSAFA UK


All profits from the sale of my novel, Boswell’s Fairies, sent to a UK delivery address will be donated to the SSAFA (formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association).

SSAFA provides lifelong support to the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in times of need. Beginning this vital work in 1885, this makes SSAFA the oldest tri-service, military charity running in the UK. This year alone, staff and teams of volunteers have helped over 67,000 people – from World War Two veterans to those involved in more recent conflicts and their families.  It has become clear over more than 130 years of providing Forces support that everyone faces different challenges, so SSAFA uses a tailored approach to meet the needs of today’s serving community. Whether it’s practical, emotional and financial support – SSAFA is there to serve the Armed Forces family every step of the way.







Congratulations.  Enjoyed your book – liked your theme of strong relationship, camaraderie and cooperation between the marines as counting for more than competition – something our politicians have forgotten.
