Each year through the generous support of our audiences we raise funds for various charities who work to assist veterans and those serving in our Armed Forces.
The organisers of the Birmingham International Tattoo would like to thank all of those who attended the 2017 Tattoo and helped us raise an additional £15,000 for forces charities Troop Aid and The Royal Star and Garter Homes.
Money raised during the Saturday performance goes to Troop Aid. When service personnel are injured either on training exercise or in combat operations they are admitted to hospital without their personal effects or clothing. Troop Aid supplies them with a grab bag of the 'basic essentials'.
The money raised on the Sunday performance goes to The Royal Star & Garter Homes, a charity which cares for disabled veterans and has a local home at Solihull only a few miles away from where the Tattoo is held each year. Over the last few years we have raised over £100,000 for the Royal Star & Garter Homes.
