The William Aldridge Foundation is so much more than a not for profit Forces Charitable Organisation. We seek to network, forge links, build-on, communicate, promote and work alongside existing Military Charities, Organisations and Welfare Funds. We are independently, raising funds for our beneficiaries, through various events up and down the country and the sale of our merchandise. We believe we are quite unique in showcasing the available assistance & support for our Tri-Services through our easy to navigate and continuously updated ‘Forces Friends’ online directory. Here you will find listings with kind permission, for those organisations helping British Serving Armed Forces, Veterans, Injured Service Personnel and Bereaved Military Families.
Meningitis UK has a single focus - to find a vaccine to protect against all forms of meningitis and associated diseases. Meningitis UK's 'Search 4 a Vaccine Campaign' aims to raise £7 million to help fund cutting-edge research to develop a vaccine against meningitis B, which causes almost 90% of cases in the UK and for which there is currently no vaccine.
