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 including The Royal Star & Garter Homes.
The organisers of the Birmingham International Tattoo would like to offer thanks to all 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. This brings the total raised over the last few years for Royal Star and Garter to £101,000.
Supporting The Royal Star & Garter Homes
The money raised on the Sunday performance each year 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.
The Royal Star & Garter Homes provides award-winning care for veterans and their partners who live with disability or dementia, in state-of-the-art Homes. The Charity was founded in 1916 to care for the severely injured young men returning from the battlegrounds of the First World War. Today, they provide specialist nursing, dementia and therapeutic care, together with a varied and engaging programme of activities, which enable residents to remain independent and enjoy life.
Andy Cole, Chief Executive, The Royal Star & Garter Homes said; “We are extremely grateful to the organisers, the audiences and the volunteers at the Birmingham International Tattoo who have supported us so generously through the years to bring the total raised for the disabled veterans at The Royal Star & Garter Homes to a magnificent £101,000. Every penny makes a difference to the well-being of the residents in our Solihull Home. We are proud to be a part of this military community.”
