Proud to sponsor ABF The Soldiers’ Charity annual golf day

Date: 11 August 2021 | By: RDM

We were delighted to be part of this years’ ABF The Soldiers’ Charity annual golf day, held at the Langland Bay Golf Club on the beautiful Gower Peninsula – with us, here at RDM Electrical and Mechanical Services, providing sponsorship of the longest drive competition.

The Army Benevolent Fund was formed on 15th August 1944, to ensure that soldiers returning from World War II would be taken care of. Now named ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, it is the Army’s national charity, and exists to support soldiers, former soldiers and their families for life.

One of the largest funders in the sector, it supported 60,000 people in 63 countries last year. It awards grants to individuals and families and provides essential funding to leading charities and organisations that support the Army family. When it hears of a person or family in need, it aims to respond within 48 hours.

RDM was represented at the event by Anthony Brunton and Andy Horton and accompanied by Stuart Evans and Phil Powell of Amey Defence Services, who were also there in support of the charity.

This year, the event raised the considerable sum of £5,880, which will go to help ensure that all soldiers, veterans and their immediate families should have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence and dignity.

We would also like to extend our congratulations to all the competition winners:
