Wimbish In-Service SSAFA

This year has been a good one for fundraising for ssafa! We have funds to respond to needs that individuals face and on top of that we have raised enough that we can think about bigger, more lasting projects.

This would be pointless without asking you what you want. So we are asking for suggestions. What do you think our communities (Wimbish and Wethersfield) need? Can you see any areas where money would be well spent (not really up for backyard pool expenditure for individual families or bars in single soldiers rooms but other ideas welcome!)? Even if it isn't an idea that requires money, if you can see a way our communities and lives can be improved please let us know either on the facebook site, at the HIVE or in the suggestion box in the Village Hall.

We want to hear your voice!

*Whilst we will try we can't promise to deliver on every idea but all suggestions will be weighed equally.
