Every day, we work with serving members of the British Armed Forces to help make sure they’re not paying too much tax. We believe that our Army, Navy and RAF personnel deserve all the support they can get, so we work hard to help them claim tax refunds against work-related expenses such as travelling to temporary bases.
However, we know there is much more that needs to be done to support serving and veteran personnel. Help for Heroes is a brilliant cause that assists those living with injuries or illnesses attributable to their time in the Armed Forces. It has been our pleasure to help collect donations for Help for Heroes in the past and last weekend (October 13th and 14th), we stepped in to lend our support once again.
Our team volunteers, Jane and Carley, had a great day at Tesco at Park Farm, Ashford, collecting donations from shoppers and well-wishers. We don’t yet have a figure for the amount collected, but everyone was so generous that we’re sure it’s going to be an impressive total.
So, thank you very much to everyone who donated and we look forward to meeting more members of the public on future collection days.
In the meantime, JNR Group wants to support other charities too. We plan to donate £500 to another charity that supports the Armed Forces, but we need your help to decide which cause should receive our gift. Please visit our Facebook page and comment on the charity that you think deserves our donation and why.
We’ll announce our decision on Armistice Day, November 11th, which is also the Centenary of the end of the First World War. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to all those who have sacrificed so much over the years.
